Uli HoeneÃ? had it all: As a soccer star in the 1970s, he was instrumental in the Euro 72 and 74 World Cup triumphs of Germany's national team before becoming a very successful general-manager with his club Bayern Munich. Now, HoeneÃ? is under investigation for allegedly evading taxes on assets deposited in a Swiss bank account.
