Juventus coach Antonio Conte has had his ten month suspension reduced to four after winning an appeal at the Italy’s National Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday.

Conte is currently suspended from all coaching duties including attending any of the Serie A champions’ games. In August he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix the outcome of a Siena game whilst he was in charge of the Tuscany club two seasons ago.

The reduced punishment means Conte will be able to resume his coaching responsibilities starting with a Serie A match at Palermo on 9 December against Palermo.

However, by then he would have missed out on ten domestic league matches and the entire group stage of the his side’s Champions League campaign.
