After New Deal With The Blues, Conte Faces Trial On Alleged Match FixingFeatured, Latest News, Sports Tuesday, April 5th, 2016
If an Italian Prosecutor has his way, the incoming Chelsea Head Coach, Antonio Conte is likely to be slamed with a six month suspension, plus 8000 Euro over allegation of match fixing.
The suit challenging Conte centred on 2011 when he was in charge of Siena in Serie B.
Prosecutor, Roberto di Martino has cited a match against Albino Leffe, claiming Conte knew about match-fixing moves. He made the fine plea Tuesday in a closed-doors hearing in Cremona.
Conte’s lawyer, Leonardo Cammarata, said the defence was due to make its final statement to the court on April 11 while ruling is scheduled for May, 2016.
The Italian Head Coach has denied any wrongdoing.
Already, the ex-Juventus boss has served a ban imposed by the Italian soccer Federation in connection with the 2011 case.
Chelsea Spokesman was quoted as saying the Blues would not comment on the ongoing investigations.
