Soccer: Juve appeals Conte ban again


(ANSA) - Turin, August 29 - Juventus on Wednesday appealed to
Italian sport's highest court against a 10-month ban incurred by
coach Antonio Conte for a match-fixing offence.
The Turin club appealed to the Italian Olympic Committee's
national sports arbitration tribunal (TNAS), the ultimate
arbiter on sporting controversies in Italy.
On August 22 the ban - which Juve called the result of a
"witch hunt" and Conte described as a "disgrace" - was upheld by
a federal appeals.
Conte, who led Juve to the Serie A title last season, was
found guilty of failing to report an agreement to fix the
results of a match when he was in charge of Siena in the second
tier in the 2010-11 campaign.
A second count was dismissed but the ban still remained at
10 months.
The Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) and Juve have traded
blows since the appeals verdict, with Juve saying Conte was a
scapegoat and FIGC chief Giancarlo Abete accusing Juve of trying
to "use justice for its own purposes".
Conte suggested that the FIGC prosecutor was "acting like a
fan (of another club)".
Juve - but only because of Conte's previous post at Siena -
have been the biggest club touched by Italy's latest
match-fixing scandal.
In the 2006 Calciopoli scandal it was stripped of two Serie
A titles - which it still claims - and relegated to Serie B.
