Bayern star out on bail in arson probe

Bayern Munich's Breno was released from prison on Thursday after posting bail following his arrest in an arson investigation.

As reported here last month, Breno escaped serious injury as his Munich villa was burnt to the ground but the defender was remanded in custody, suspected of playing a role in the fire.

"We are happy that Breno has been released and allowed to return to his family and FC Bayern," said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The 21-year-old Brazilian, who joined Bayern three years ago, had been recovering from an injury and was alone at home at the time of the fire, which gutted his house.
