Juventus manager Antonio Conte has had his 10 month ban reduced to four months.

Today, TNAS declared that they have issued a reduction, and the Bianconeri coach will return to the touchline on the 9th of December against Palermo.

Conte had originally received a ban of 10 months for his part in a match fixing scandal that occurred while he was manager of Siena. After an unsuccessful appeal, the Bianconeri trainer has finally received a reduced sentence.

Assistant manager Massimo Carrera has been on the touchline for every match this season. The squad and staff have shown the ability to concentrate on playing football in light of this turbulence.

Juventus remain at the top of the table in the Serie A, and are looking to continue their unbeaten league streak this Sunday against Siena.
