Uli Hoeness admits that he could step down as the Bayern Munich president if investigation into tax evasion affects the club.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hinted that he could step down from his role at the club.

The 61-year-old is being investigated by German Revenue Administration for tax evasion that is centred on a Swiss bank account.

"These days, I feel like I am catapulted onto the fringes of society, I am no longer part of it," he told Die Zeit. "Needless to say, I blame myself massively. I made a huge mistake, but I am not a bad person. It is a situation I am hardly able to take.

"If I get the impression my presence damages the club, I will take the consequences. But in no circumstances will I step down before the Champions League final."

Bayern will take on Borussia Dortmund in the final of the Champions League at London's Wembley Stadium later this month.
