ROME: Juventus announced their ‘full support’ for coach Antonio Conte and said they were preparing an appeal after the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) banned him for 10 months as part of a match-fixing investigation. Conte and his assistant Angelo Alessio, who was suspended for eight months, were sanctioned for failing to disclose knowledge of two fixed matches while they worked at Siena during the 2010-11 season.
