The Juventus manager, Antonio Conte, has been banned for 10 months in connection with the Calcioscommesse match-fixing scandal.

The Italy and Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci and team-mate Simone Pepe were, however, acquitted by an Italian Football Federation tribunal but Conte's assistant, Angelo Alessio, was banned for eight months.

Conte, who led Juventus to the Serie A title last season, was accused of failing to report two incidents of match-fixing in the 2010-11 season when he was the coach of Siena. Juventus have said Conte would appeal.
