Prosecutor wants Conte in jail

Conte 2

New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte should be given a six-month suspended jail sentence for his involvement in alleged match fixing, per the demands of prosecutor in Cremona.

Conte was confirmed as Chelsea’s new boss yesterday on Monday but is accused of failing to report fixing in a Serie B match between Albinoleffe and his former club Siena in 2011.

The 46-year-old who will take charge at Stamford Bridge in the summer when his contract as Italy manager expires at the end of Euro 2016, denies the charge.

According to Football Italia, prosecutor Roberto Di Martino has called for Conte to be given the suspended sentence as well as a €8,000 (£6,414) fine.

Conte’s trial has been fast-tracked, meaning that the defendant could have a sentence reduced by one third if convicted.
