Juventus Boss Antonio Conte Banned for Ten Months For His Involvement In Match Fixing Scandal

Italian football federation (FIGC) dish out lenient punishment to Conte for his involvement in the Scommessopoli scandal.

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has been handed a ten month ban for his involvement in the match-fixing scandal that has rocked the Italian game.

The 43 year old has been found guilty of failing to report attempts to influence the result of two Serie B matches against Novara and AlbinoLeffe in the 2010-11 season when he was in charge of Siena.

One wonders why the authorities didn’t hand out a stiffer punishment. If they are keen to put and end to the issue of match-fixing, and it’s an issue that comes up time and time again in Italy, then they would do well to make an example of a high profile member of the football community so as to make it absolutely clear that such behaviour will not be tolerated.
