Prison has changed me, says ex-Bayern defender Breno

Former Bayern Munich defender Breno has admitted he has "changed as a person" during his time in prison.

The 23-year-old was sentenced to three years and nine months in 2012 after being found guilty of aggravated arson following a fire at his rented villa the previous year.

The Brazilian has been offered five hours a day work with the Bayern Under-23 side and he feels indebted to the club for the opportunity following his spell away from the game.

He said: "My time in prison was hard for me and I am pleased that Bayern have given me this opportunity. Thanks to Bayern, I’m fine.

"I have changed as a person. I learned a lot in prison. My wife and my kids were behind me the whole time. I’ve thought a lot about God, and without God there’s not much."

Breno originally signed with the Bundesliga club in 2007 as a 17-year-old, but injuries stalled his early career in Germany.

"We have a mandate to integrate these people back to life," sporting director Matthias Sammer said, while president Uli Hoeness added: "Breno is a member of the big Bayern family, who once had problems.Now there is a glimmer of hope and we want to give it to him."
