A Swiss bank account held by Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness,who is under investigation for suspected tax evasion,is unrelated to the Bundesliga champions,he said on Wednesday. Hours before his team take on Barcelona in Spain for their Champions League semi-final second leg,Hoeness said the club had nothing to do with the account under investigation,which was used only for stock market gambling and financed by the late Robert-Louis Dreyfus,a former head of sports manufacturer Adidas. From 2002 to 2006 I was really gambling (with stocks), Hoeness told Zeit newspaper. This gave me a kick,pure adrenaline, said Hoeness,who has been under mounting pressure to step down.
