Juventus coach Conte back in December after ban slashed

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has had his 10-month ban dramatically slashed.

Conte will return to the touchline on December 9 after his suspension was cut to four months.

He was suspended from match-day duties after he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix a game which he was in charge at Siena.

Conte’s lawyers took their case to the TNAS court in a bid to be acquitted of the charge, but they were only able to get a reduction in his punishment.

The former midfielder’s ban will now expire on December 8, which means he will be able to return to the bench for the December 9 tie at Palermo in Week 16.
