Juventus coach Conte's ban reduced to 4 months
MILAN (AFP) - Juventus coach Antonio Conte has had his 'Calcioscommesse' match-fixing ban reduced from 10 months to four months, Italy's National Court of Arbitration for Sport (TNAS) announced on Friday.
Conte was suspended by the Italian authorities before the start of the season after being accused of failing to disclose knowledge of match-fixing during his time at Siena in the 2010-11 season.
He will now be able to resume his position on the touchline with the Turin giants, level with Napoli at the top of Serie A, on Dec 8.
Conte's ban has been endorsed by football's world ruling body Fifa, meaning he cannot coach the Serie A champions during international as well as domestic fixtures.
