Conte 'satisfied' after FIGC match-fixing questioning


(ANSA) - Rome, July 13 - Antonio Conte, coach of Serie A
champions Juventus, said he was "satisfied" after being
questioned by Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) prosecutors on
Friday for alleged involvement in Italy's latest match-fixing
"I'm happy. I clarified everything and I'm totally
satisfied," he said. "Finally I could tell the truth. Now I can
go back (to training) and concentrate on what I do best:
Conte was placed under investigation May 28 in relation to
the 'Last Bet' betting-related match-fixing probe.
Investigators are looking into suspicions that Conte knew
about an agreement to draw a match when he was in charge of
Siena in the second tier in the 2010-11 season.
Over 40 people have been arrested as part of
investigations into gambling-related match-fixing in Serie A and
the lower tiers since 'Last Bet' went public last year.
They include Lazio midfielder Stefano Mauri, former Italy
internationals Beppe Signori and Cristiano Doni, and Atalanta
defender Andrea Masiello, who admitted deliberately scoring an
own goal to ensure his former side Bari lost 2-0 to Lecce in the
2010-11 campaign, when they were relegated to Serie B.
Azzurri defenders Domenico Criscito of Zenit Saint
Petersburg and Leonardo Bonucci, who plays for Juve, are under
investigation and will be questioned by the FIGC on Monday.
The new case has rocked the Italian soccer world again
after Juventus were relegated and stripped of two Serie A titles
for involvement in the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal in 2006.
