German treble winners set to help troubled Breno…
Bayern Munich have employed former defender Breno to work as a youth coach while on day release from prison, Twenty4sevenfootball confirms.
The 23-year-old Brazilian stopper has been in prison for the past 13 months, after he was convicted of Arson for burning down his own villa back in 2011.
He will first start work for five hours release during morning from the Stadelheim correctional facility, and will then increase his hours to a full eight-hour working day.
“The time in prison has been very hard for me,” said the defender who Bayern Munich bought from Sao Paulo back in 2008.
“I have changed as a person and I have learned a lot in there. I am happy to be given this chance by Bayern,” he added.
Breno was once touted as a future star of European football, encouraging Bayern to shell out a large sum for the teenage prodigy. Personal problems got the better of Breno though, who only made 21 league appearances for the German side.
Thanks to the second chance Bayern have given him though, he now hopes to regain fitness, and once again become a professional footballer.
“It means I can train again and maybe play again later on — that’s my dream.”
