Possible match-fixing trial for Italy coach

Rome - Italy coach Antonio Conte is among 104 people whom a prosecutor is requesting be brought to trial under match-fixing charges.

Cremona prosecutor Roberto di Martino made the expected requests on Tuesday in a case that has stretched back nearly five years.

Conte is being investigated for committing sports fraud when he coached Siena in 2010-11.

If indicted, Conte will likely request a fast-track trial in an attempt to clear himself before next year's European Championship.

Conte, who has denied wrongdoing, has already served a four-month sports ban during the 2012-13 season when he was with Juventus.

Trial requests were also made for current and former Lazio captains Stefano Mauri and Giuseppe Signori, as well as former Atalanta captain Cristiano Doni.

A judge will decide on eventual indictments.
