Conte cleared over match-fixing scandal….

Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager-elect Antonio Conte has been cleared of any wrongdoing in a match fixing scandal from 2011. The 46-year-old, who will lead Italy at Euro 2016 next month, was accused of doing nothing to halt a scandal while in charge of Italian side Siena. However a judge in Cremona acquitted Conte because the accusations of sporting fraud were baseless. Conte, who served a ban in connection with the case in 2012, will take charge of Chelsea after the Euros.
