Media silence for Juventus
Conte, who is currently said to be charged for failing to report an attempted fix while coaching Siena in Serie B for the 2010/2011 campaign, had agreed a plea bargain of a three-month ban with a €200,000 fine from prosecutor Stefano Palazzi.
However, in a twist to the tail the Disciplinary Commission rejected the plea bargain and it now remains to be seen whether or not the Scudetto winning tactician will have to undergo a full trial or be able to renegotiate a new plea.
“Juventus have today enforced a media blackout,” read the club’s official statement on Wednesday afternoon.
“The situation will be assessed tomorrow, based on today’s facts, which are considered as, regardless of the event’s outcome, an extremely serious act concerning the honour of all subjects involved: professionals, managers, employees and the club.
“The club will make further comment tomorrow.”
