Italy coach Antonio Conte has been cleared of match-fixing after a fast-track trial in Cremona.

The prosecutor had requested a suspended six-month sentence for the future Chelsea manager as well as a fine of 8,000 euros ($9,000).

Conte was accused of sports fraud in 2010-11 when he was coach of Siena.

The match under investigation is Siena’s 1-0 win at Albinoleffe in May 2011. Siena’s 2-2 draw at Novara, also in May 2011, was dropped from the inquiry.

Conte, who has denied wrongdoing, served a four-month ban during the 2012-13 season when he was at Juventus for failing to report fixing at Siena.
