Bayern to offer Breno coaching role

Bayern Munich are to offer defender Breno the role of youth coach if he is allowed to leave prison on day parole.

• Blog: Danke, Super Mario!

Breno, 23, who signed for Bayern for €12 million in 2008, was sentenced to three years and nine months' imprisonment for arson in July 2012 after he set fire to his own house under the influence of alcohol in September 2011.

However, he could now be released from Stadelheim prison on day parole due to his good behaviour, and the Treble winners are keen to give the Brazilian some responsibility within the club.

"[Bayern president] Uli Hoeness has been in contact with the director of the Stadelheim prison for a while now. It seems that Breno has behaved very well there," Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in Die Welt.

"We are really hopeful that he will get a sort of day parole. He could leave the prison from eight in the morning until eight in the evening. He needs to have a job for that. That would also be in our interest. He could possibly work in our youth department. The foreigners' registration office has to approve as well."

Breno, who, according to media reports, has already verbally agreed a three-year deal with Sao Paulo which will come into effect after his sentence is completed, would not be the first convicted footballer to pursue a profession within the game while on day parole.

Suleyman Koc is currently able to play for German fourth-tier side SV Babelsberg after being released on day parole in the summer of 2012. Koc had been sentenced to three years and nine months' imprisonment for being part of the "Machete gang", who robbed casino slot machines in Berlin.

"That's great news, an important step for him," Koc said of Breno to Die Welt. "I keep my fingers crossed that he now hangs on and seizes his chance. I know what he is going through right now."
