FIFA extend Contes 10-month ban worldwide

14 September 2012 06:17

Juventus coach Antonio Conte had his 10-month corruption ban extended worldwide by FIFA on Friday.

Conte was suspended by the Italian authorities after being accused of failing to disclose knowledge of match-fixing during his time at Siena in the 2010-11 season.

"This suspension covers all types of matches, including domestic, international, friendlies and official," said a FIFA statement.

The world governing body added that any appeal would be monitored by them, including the one about to be heard by an Italian arbitration panel.

FIFA's ban comes just five days before Juventus open their Champions League campaign against Chelsea in London.
