Juve coach Conte banned for 10 months

MOST COMMENTED

An Italian soccer tribunal has imposed a 10-month suspension on Juventus head coach Antonio Conte for his involvement in a match-fixing scandal.

Conte, who led an undefeated Juventus to the Serie A title in his first season in charge, was accused of failing to report incidents of match-fixing when he was the coach of then Serie B team Siena. The Siena matches in question were against Novara and Albinoleffe in May 2011.

Juve sporting director Beppe Marotta said he hasn't thought about replacing Conte. "Our defense lawyers are already at work and we are convinced that after the appeal we will have Conte back on the bench by Sept. 10," said Marotta.

Juventus is in Beijing, where it plays Napoli in the Italian Super Cup this weekend. The Serie A season starts on Aug. 24 with assistant coach Massimo Carrera set to be Juve's interim coach. Another Conte assistant, Angelo Alessio, was banned for eight months.
