Conte could face trial

Cremona prosecutors have asked that 104 match-fixing suspects be brought to trial, including Italy CT Antonio Conte.

It was revealed last month that the former Juventus Coach had been indicted for alleged sporting fraud, relating to his time in charge of Siena.

Today, it has emerged that the prosecutor, Roberto Di Martino, has requested that Conte stand trial in relation to the Albinoleffe-Siena match on May 29.

A charge for criminal conspiracy was dropped, while charges relating to the Novara-Siena match on November 30 2011 were also dismissed.

The request does not necessarily mean that Conte will stand trial for the alleged offence, but instead the prosecutor will present his evidence to a judge at a preliminary hearing.

The Azzurri boss would have the opportunity to put his case to the judge, who will then decide whether there are grounds to proceed to a full trial.

Beppe Signori and Cristiano Doni are still facing charges of criminal conspiracy, with the prosecutor also requesting that they be brought to trial.
