What They're Saying

"I find it unbelievable that the boy, who already has enough trouble on his shoulders in total, that he should also be held in custody. That is inhumane. And if the state prosecutor believes that this is correct in our country, then good night Germany."

-- Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness reacts to the team's Brazilian defender Breno being held in custody on suspicion of burning down his own house. Breno, 21, was treated for smoke inhalation after his villa on the outskirts of Munich caught fire last week. Police said he was being held because there was a risk of him tampering with evidence or fleeing the country. Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge pointed out Breno had lost his passport in the fire so would not be able to leave Germany. (The Local)
