Juventus coach Antonio Conte is facing a 10-month ban from football while Lecce and Grosseto have been demoted from Serie B following an inquiry into match-fixing in Italy.
The coach of the reigning Serie A champions was accused by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) of failing to report alleged match-fixing involving Siena when he managed them in the 2010-11 Serie B season.
Lecce and Grosseto were found guilty of the more serious charge of direct involvement in match-fixing and their punishments reflected that, with both clubs relegated to Lega Pro ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.
Former Lecce president Giovanni Semeraro, who sold the club in June, and former Grosseto president Piero Camilli have been handed five-year bans for their part in the scandal.
Conte’s assistant Angelo Alessio, who followed him from Siena to Juventus, has also been banned for eight months while former Bari defender Nicola Belmonte faces a six-month suspension.
Six other players — Leonardo Bonucci, Simone Pepe, Marco di Vaio, Salvatore Masiello, Daniele Padelli and Giuseppe Vives — have been acquitted of the charges against them.
