Juventus head coach Antonio Conte has touchline ban reduced to six months
Friday 05 October 2012
Juventus head coach Antonio Conte will return to the touchline in December after having his lengthy suspension from football reduced by six months today.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) suspended Conte for 10 months in August for his alleged failure to report two incidents of match-fixing while in charge of Siena during the 2010-11 Serie B season.
A subsequent appeal to the Federal Court of Justice failed, but Conte's lawyers' move for acquittal by Italy's sporting arbitration court (TNAS) has resulted in a reduction of six months, allowing Conte to take charge of Juventus' Serie A game at Palermo on December 9.
