Antonio Conte will be questioned when Bari
are investigated for their role in the Scommessopoli
scandal on Tuesday, according to Corriere dello Sport
.The 43-year-old had already been threatened with the possibility of a 15-month ban by federal prosecutor Stefano Palazzi
, after failing to report instances of match-fixing while at Siena, and will now stand trial to clear his name.
However, it has now come to light that the coach, who recently led Juventus to their first official Serie A title since 2003, could face further punishment, relating to his spell in charge of second-tier outfit Bari between 2007 and 2009.
The accusations claim the Biancorossi
deliberately threw their 3-2 defeat to Salernitana on May 23, 2009, with Conte, in his post-match reaction, suggesting: "It was a real game and I would like to have come out unscathed."
Conte sat out Juventus' 2-0 friendly victory over Malaga on Saturday, with first-team coach Massimo Carrera taking the reins.
