FIFA extends Juventus manager Antonio Conte's 10-month ban to all possible games

The chairman of football's governing body Disciplinary Committee has extended the sanction on the Bianconeri coach to have a global worldwide effect

Juventus manager Antonio Conte has had his 10-month ban extended to cover all games including friendlies.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) earlier this year gave him the ban for alleged match fixing violations but on Friday FIFA’s disciplinary committee in accordance with article 136 of the FIFA disciplinary code had this ban extended to cover all types of matches, including domestic, international, friendly and official fixtures.

The final decision on whether to extend the sanctions imposed on the 43-year-old by the FIGC will follow the outcome of any potential appeal, as long as the appeal complies with FIFA regulations.

FIFA is currently reviewing additional documentation provided by the FIGC which relates to other sanctions issued by the Italian Football Federation deciding bodies which could mean further penalties.

The decision to extend Conte’s ban follows other global sanctions handed out by the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee to individuals in Finland, Croatia, Korea Republic, and Turkey since February of this year.

Juventus starts its Champions League campaign against Chelsea next week where technical director Massimo Carrera will take charge.
