No room for Conte at Fiorentina?

Suspended Juventus boss Antonio Conte could watch next week’s game against Fiorentina from a hotel room in Florence.

Conte is currently serving a 10-month touchline ban after he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix a Siena game while he was in charge of the club.

So far this term, Conte has been able to follow Juventus’ domestic games from private boxes while Massimo Carrera took over touchline duties.

However, the Stadio Artemio Franchi currently has no room for the former midfielder to be seated in isolation.

Conte won’t be seated amongst fans given the great rivalry between Fiorentina and the Old Lady of Italian football.

As a result, the Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that Conte could stay away from the arena altogether when the two teams meet on Tuesday.
