Current Juventus and ex-Siena coach Antonio Conte had his plea bargain rejected by the FIGC on Monday. Conte faces charges of failing to report attempted sported fraud while coach of Siena in the 2010-2011 season. The current face of the Old Lady has always maintained his innocence, but rather than face the possibility of a year's ban from football, he put forth a plea bargain: a three-month suspension and €200,000 fine.
Surprisingly enough, the judges rejected this proposal, stating that the punishment was not suited to the crime. They also turned down Siena's plea bargain of a five point deduction and €40,000 fine.
Juventus, obviously not pleased with the idea of going without their coach for a year, is once again in an uproar over a decision made by an Italian court. They want the entire trial thrown out, stating that the judges have already made up their minds on Conte's guilt.
