Juventus coach Carrera imprisoned for involuntary manslaughter

The Bianconeri first-team coach has been sentenced to two and a half years in jail for knocking down and killing two women in his car on New Year's Eve 2011
Juventus first-team coach Massimo Carrera has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison on two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

The 49-year-old, who stood in for Antonio Conte during his ban for failing to report match-fixing, was found guilty of knocking down and killing two 23-year-old girls on New Year's Eve 2011.

The court decided that Carrera had more than enough time to see the girls and avoid hitting them while driving along the A4 highway between Dalmine and Bergamo.

And the former Italy international will spend the next 30 months behind bars for the crime.

Carrera started the season in charge of the Old Lady but when Angelo Alessio's ban ended, he took the reins until the completion of Conte's suspension.

Carrera represented the likes of Bari, Juve, Atalanta and Napoli during his playing career and joined the Turin giants' backroom staff in 2011.
