Conte appeal verdict postponed

Antonio Conte’s touchline suspension continues after an appeal court opted to postpone making a judgment on the Juventus tactician.

The Coach is currently serving a 10-month ban after he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix a game which he was in charge at Siena.

Conte has taken his case to the TNAS in Rome in a bid to get his ban overturned – or at least reduced.

A decision was expected today, but after hearing from Conte’s lawyers for around 30 minutes, the panel decided to postpone the hearing until October 2.

It’s understood that the decision was taken in order to give Conte’s legal team more time to gather evidence.
