Uli Hoeness, Bayern Munich’s longtime president, stepped down on Friday evening during the club’s annual general meeting.
“That’s all! I’m done! Thank you!” said Hoeness, 67, ending his nearly half-century tenure with Bayern Munich, since joining the club as a player in 1970.
“A world and European champion with West Germany, Hoeness scored 108 goals in 329 matches for Bayern,” said the German football league Bundesliga’s official website.
“A career that included three Bundesliga titles, a DFB Cup, and three consecutive European Cups was cut short at the age of 27 due to injury in 1979.”
