Italy coach Antonio Conte investigated for match-fixing
Italian national team coach Antonio Conte is being investigated for match-fixing when he coached Siena in the 2010-11 season, the Associated Press reports.
Conte, 45, led Siena to a 21-14-7 record and a second-place finish in Italy's Serie B. He allegedly fixed matches late in the season after Siena had already clinched promotion to Serie A.
In 2012, Conte was suspended for 10 months for the same charges, but his ban was later reduced to four months. There are no criminal charges associated with the latest investigation of Conte.
Atalanta manager Stefano Colantono, who led his team to a first-place finish in 2011, is also being investigated for match-fixing. In total, more than 130 people are being investigated for match-fixing.
After he parted ways with Juventus in July, Italy hired Conte as its manager in August.
