thumbnail Hello,

The Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit have learned their sentence in the Scommessopoli case, with two of their coaches also due to serve a five-month suspension

The FIGC Disciplinary Committee has ruled that Siena will begin the new season with minus six points for their role in the Scommessopoli match-fixing scandal.

The Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit had offered a plea bargain of a five-point penalty and a €40,000 fine, but the proposal was rejected by the FIGC judges.

A new plea bargain has now been agreed between Siena and the magistrates, with the Italian club also due to pay a fine of €100,000.

Siena goalkeeping coach Marco Savorani and fitness coach Giorgio D’Urbano have both been handed bans of five months and 10 days, while Bolzano's Dario Passoni has been given a ban of six months and 15 days and Albinoleffe assistant a six-month ban.

Earlier on Wednesday, Juventus coach Antonio Conte had his plea bargain deal rejected, but the 42-year-old has not yet decided his next move.

According to reports, the Italian coach, who is charged with failing to report two attempts of match-fixing when he was in charge of Siena in the 2010-11 season, is considering a new bargain deal which will include a four-month suspension and a €100,000 fine.
