Italy coach, Antonio Conte, could face a criminal trial for his alleged involvement in match-fixing in 2011.

Conte, who has already served a ban imposed by the Italian football federation (FIGC) for not reporting alleged match-fixing in two games involving ex-club Siena and has always denied any wrongdoing, was accused of “sports fraud” by the prosecutor in the northern city of Cremona.

The former Juventus coach is among 104 people a prosecutor has requested to have charges pressed against them. If that is done, the judiciary will fix a date for a preliminary, closed-door hearing where a judge will decide whether to press charges.

Conte has gone on to win three successive Serie A titles with Juventus before being appointed Italy coach in 2014.

The general inquiry followed alleged attempts to manipulate matches in Serie B, the Italian second division, and the third tier Lega Pro during the 2010-11 season.

The FIGC has already conducted its own investigation and banned Conte for 10 months in 2012, later reduced to four months on appeal.

More than 50 players were banned for up to five years and a number of clubs, including Atalanta and Siena, have had points deducted by the FIGC over the case.
