Juve coach to meet prosecutors
Juventus head coach Antonio Conte is meeting Italian Football
Federation (FIGC) prosecutors in relation to a fresh match-fixing
The 43-year-old was suspended for 10 months in August, a
punishment later reduced to four months on appeal, for failing to
report attempted match-fixing by players during his tenure at Siena
in the 2010-11 season.
The FIGC have now invited Conte to discuss two games involving
another of his former clubs, Bari, whose league defeats to Treviso
and Salernitana in May 2008 and May 2009 respectively have recently
fallen under suspicion.
A statement published on the FIGC’s official website confirmed
Conte’s appointment with prosecutors Stefano Palazzi alongside
former Bari players Giovanni Marchese and Andrea Masiello was
scheduled for Monday.
Another former Bari player, Vitali Kutuzov, will meet
prosecutors on Thursday.
