Conte to be questioned over match-fixing scandal on Friday

The Juventus coach will meet with FIGC prosecutor Stefano Palazzi in Rome to discuss his alleged knowledge of the Scommessopoli scandal
Juventus trainer Antonio Conte travelled to Rome on Thursday evening for a meeting with Italian FA (FIGC) prosecutor Stefano Palazzi on Friday afternoon to discuss his part in Italy's most recent match-fixing probe, Tuttosport reports.

Former Siena player Filippo Carobbio recently stated to the prosecution that Conte had told his players a Serie B match against Novara had been fixed, and the former Italy international will get the chance to defend himself against the accusations at 15:00CET on July 13.

Palazzi will first receive sworn testimonies of 15 people who were present during the meeting where Conte supposedly stated the clash had been fixed, statements that will all contradict Carobbio's revelations.

The FIGC prosecutor will then listen to the people who witnessed an altercation between the current Juventus boss and Carobbio's wife during his spell at Siena.

Conte will be accompanied by his legal team during Friday's meeting, and the 42-year-old is confident that he will be acquitted.
