Conte appears before match-fixing investigation

Juventus manager Antonio Conte appeared before Italian football federation prosecutors on Friday to answer questions about match-fixing that took place while he was in charge of Siena.

Conte spent three hours 40 minutes answering questions about allegations of sporting fraud during his time at the then-Serie B club Siena in 2011, brought by former player Filippo Carobbio.

Carobbio claimed that he knew that one game at least between Siena and Novara in April last year was rigged.

"There isn't much to say, finally the day arrived where I could tell the truth in a calm environment," Conte told reporters after leaving court.

"I restate my contentment at being able to tell my side of the story, this evening I'm returning to Valle D'Aosta [the base of Juventus' pre-season training camp] to do what I do best, win and be a coach."

Siena have already been fined 50,000 euros in the latest Italian match-fixing scandal.
