Conte indicted for fraud?

Italy CT Antonio Conte has reportedly been indicted for alleged sporting fraud as part of an ongoing match-fixing investigation. 

Corriere dello Sport has reported that the Azzurri boss has been charged by Cremona prosecutor Roberto di Martino as part of the same investigation that saw him banned for four months in 2012.

Conte’s lawyer recently rejected suggestions that he might resign from his position with La Nazionale, but calls for the 45-year-old's departure could now re-surface.

The newspaper believes that the former Juventus Coach has been charged over two matches, Novara-Siena and Albinoleffe-Siena, but that he will have to defend only one of these games.

Conte’s legal representatives are believed to have demanded that a verdict is reached before the European Championships in 2016, with the process due to start this autumn.
