Conte asks for faster trial

Italy CT Antonio Conte has officially asked for his trial in the Calcioscommesse affair to be expedited.

The Coach is accused of failing to report a fix against Albinoleffe when he was in charge of Siena, a charge he has always strongly denied.

A new round of trials has called for Conte to testify, but the Azzurri boss's lawyer is today requesting a fast-track trial, presumably to get the trail out of the way before the European Championships.

A decision from judge Pierpaolo Beluzzi is expected tomorrow.

The former Juventus Coach is expected to take over at Chelsea after the tournament in France this summer.
