Conte acquitted for sporting fraud

Italy CT and future Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been acquitted from charges of sporting fraud.

The former Juventus Coach was accused of failing to report a fix while in charge of Siena, which he has always denied.

The Cremona prosecutor asked for a six-month suspended sentence, but Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that Conte has been acquitted today by judge Pierpaolo Beluzzi.

The Azzurri boss had opted for a fast-track trial to resolve the accusations that he had failed to report a fixed result against Albinoleffe on 29 May 2011.

The issue has been looming over Conte for some time and his acquittal has arrived in good time ahead of Euro 2016 and his later move to Stamford Bridge.
