Italian Court Confirms Juventus Coach's 10-month Ban For Match Fixing

ROME – An Italian tribunal has confirmed today a 10-month ban for Juventus FC coach Antonio Conte, reports La Reppublica.

Football Federation judges rejected his appeal against a verdict handed down earlier this month, adds Reuters.

Antonio Conte, who played for Juventus from 1992 to 2004 and led the team to the Italian title last year as a coach, was accused of failing to report incidents of match fixing in two games in the 2010-11 season, reports BBC Sport.

At the time, he was the coach of then second division (Serie B) side Siena. The Siena matches that came under scrutiny were against Novara and Albinoleffe in May 2011, reports Eurosport.

Juventus officials said they filed a second appeal, which will be heard in September. His assistant Massimo Carrera has temporarily replaced him as coach.

The judges also rejected the appeal filed by prosecutors against Juventus players Leonardo Bonucci and Simone Pepe, former Bari players Nicola Belmonte and Salvatore Masiello and football club Udinese - who were all acquitted in a first trial. They were accused of fixing a match between Bari and Udinese in 2010, reports AGI.

The Federation prosecutor had wanted a three-and-a-half year ban for Italy's Bonucci, who was with Bari at the time, and one-year ban for Pepe, who was then playing for Udinese.
