Juventus coach Antonio Conte has been
summoned to appear before the Italian football federation's
prosecutor on July 13 over allegations of match-fixing from his
time as Siena coach, the federation said in a statement on
Police said in May that Conte was being investigated on
suspicion of sporting fraud concerning a match between Siena and
Novara in April 2011 before the former won promotion to Serie A.
Conte has denied wrongdoing and Juventus, who won the Serie
A title last term without losing a game in his first season in
charge, have fully backed their former midfielder.
Siena have already been fined in the latest Italian
match-fixing scandal but Conte now runs the risk of receiving a
punishment - possibly a ban from the game - if charged and found
guilty in the sporting courts.
The federation probe is separate to the police investigation
but evidence has been passed between both.
