Juventus coach Conte faces disciplinary commission

ROME (AP) — Already serving a four-month ban for match-fixing, Juventus coach Antonio Conte may miss a few more games for criticizing Italy's sports justice system.

The Italian soccer federation's prosecutor announced Wednesday that Conte will face a disciplinary commission for his comments after his 10-month ban was upheld on appeal in August. Conte said then that he was being made a scapegoat and a judge had something personal against him.

The federation says Conte "expressed doubt over the impartiality of the decisions made by the prosecutor's office."

Last week, a national sports arbitration court reduced Conte's ban by six months, meaning he can return Dec. 8.

The ban stems from wrongdoing when Conte coached Siena in Serie B two seasons ago.
