Former Bayern Munich centre-back Breno is to take up a coaching role with the reserve side after being granted day release from Stadelheim prison in Munich.

The Brazilian was sentenced to three years and nine months in July 2012 after being convicted of arson for setting fire to his rented luxury villa.

However, the 23-year-old will begin his reintroduction to society by helping Dremmler Wolfgang in his role of Head of Youth Performance at the Allianz Arena.

A spokesman for Stadelheim prison told German magazine Focus: "With this step, Breno has the chance to re-integrate himself back into society as soon as possible."

Breno will be expected to return to the prison by a set time each day.

The news will alert Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, who last week made a public appeal to the German justice system to release Breno to allow him to continue his career in his native country.

"I want to ask that they consider whether the boy deserves a second chance," he told the Frankfurter Allemeine Zeitung newspaper.

Champions League winners Bayern had, reportedly, always promised to reinstate Breno at the Allianz Arena and offered a rehabilitation programme which has been agreed by immigration authorities and state prosecutors.

But there had been rumours that Breno former clubs Nuremberg and Sao Paulo had also offered the star the opportunity to work, however this was denied by the spokesman.
