2011–12 Italian football scandalEdit

The events were overshadowed by the recent Calcioscommesse scandals. First team manager Antonio Conte, his assistant Angelo Alessio, technical director Christian Stellini and players Leonardo Bonucci and Simone Pepe were among the accused. Stellini, Bonucci and Pepe were later acquitted, but Stellini resigned from his position in August 2012.[2][3] Club president Andrea Agnelli released a statement stating his support for the staff and players.[4] Conte and his assistant Angelo Alessio were handed ten-month and eight-month touchline bans respectively by the FIGC disciplinary committee and public prosecution office. Agnelli publicly announced the club's intention to appeal the charges.[5] Team coach Massimo Carrera was appointed caretaker manager for the duration of Conte's ban. Conte returned to his position in December 2012 for the match against Palermo. Conte and Alessio were at Siena at the time the scandal took place, so Juventus itself was not penalized for any wrongdoing. No one involved with Juventus at the time was implicated in the scandal.
