Alessio ban cut by TNAS

Juventus assistant boss Angelo Alessio will be free to sit on the bench when Serie A resumes after he had his ban slashed.

Alessio, like Coach Antonio Conte, was suspended from match-day duties after he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix a game while they were at Siena.

Alessio took his case to the TNAS appeal court in a bid to be acquitted of the charge, but he was only able to get his six-month suspension reduced.

He will now be banned until October 15, so he will therefore be available for the October 20 tie versus Napoli.

Conte will return to the bench on December 9 against Palermo.
