Juventus coach Conte 'unworried' by Scommessopoli charges

The Italian boss has vowed to publicly speak about the case in the future and insisted that he remains calm, despite facing a lengthy ban over match-fixing
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has indicated that he is "not worried" that he is being investigated for his role in Scommessopoli scandal.

Conte is accused of failing to report two attempts to fix the outcome of a match during his time at Siena, with Italian sources claiming the 42-year-old is looking for a plea bargain in exchange for a reduced ban.

But with no definite decision made over whether he, as well as a number of other players, coaches and officials, will be charged, the Juve coach is calm.

"I am and remain confident in the sporting justice system, but when I get the chance, I, too, will speak out," Conte told reporters.

"I am not worried, especially as nothing has actually been decided so far."

The Italian coach then praised his side's effort in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Hertha Berlin, but admitted that there is a long road ahead before the Italian Supercoppa clash against Napoli in August.

"I am happy about the test, in particular with those who were required to play in a different position, like Luca Marrone and Stephan Lichtsteiner," Conte added.

"Certain players still need to absorb the workload, while others still need to adapt to the mechanisms we use.

"These are elements to consider, thinking back to the moments of the game in which we suffered the most."
