Former Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has been fined 125,000 euros for failing to declare more than 6,000 euros ($9,745) of luxury clothing he bought on a trip to Dubai.

The 41-year-old was fined for tax evasion by a regional court in Bavaria, after he failed to declare the clothes on his return to Munich airport from Dubai, German media reported.

The collection of polo shirts, t-shirts, sweaters, shirts, trousers, jackets and cuff-links were from top brands such as Armani and Dolce & Gabbana.

At customs in Munich airport, Kahn used the ‘nothing to declare’ aisle, but the tax owed on the imported goods was 2,119 euros, which resulted in the fine. Kahn, who retired in 2008, captained both Bayern Munich and Germany during his career, winning 86 caps for his country and he made 557 appearances in the Bundesliga, as well as 103 in the Champions League.
