Antonio Conte Controversy
Before Euro 2012, Conte was accused of failing to report attempted match rigging attempts by ex-Siena player Filippo Carobbio in connection with the 2011-12 betting scandal during his time as manager of Siena.

“La Roma è una squadra attrezzata, hanno un ottimo organico e un bravo allenatore. Una partita di alto indice di difficoltà per noi che viene dopo aver giocato due giorni prima contro la Spal: quindi un viaggio e un giorno in meno di recupero. Da parte nostra di positivo c’è l’entusiasmo: vediamo riconosciuto il lavoro che è stato fatto e i ragazzi cominciano ad essere apprezzati. Nell’ultimo periodo, a sorpresa, la squadra è stata bistrattata troppo”.“C’è una contingenza avuta fino dall’inizio del campionato: abbiamo avuto l’infortunio grave di Sanchez per 4-5 mesi. E anche in mezzo al campo è stata un’annata tormentata per via di alcuni infortuni ripetuti: penso a Sensi, l’abbiamo avuto per pochissimo tempo. Penso anche all’infortunio traumatico di Gagliardini e di Barella. Vecino ha sempre il problema al ginocchio. Sono stati due reparti che ci e mi hanno fatto soffrire: però vediamo il bicchiere mezzo pieno e chi sta portando la carretta ha dato risposte importanti. La Roma? “Hanno cambiato il sistema tattico, utilizzano anche loro la difesa a 3 e due trequartisti dietro a Dzeko: lui è un punto di riferimento, così come Mkhitaryan che ha ritrovato lo smalto dei vecchi tempi. Pellegrini sta facendo bene, hanno Spinazzola e Zappacosta: sono una buona squadra, Veretout e Diawara danno qualità e quantità. Anche loro erano partiti per giocare un campionato importante, bisogna fare attenzione”.🔵⚫️ #forzainter #amala #amalasempre #romainter #prematch #intervista #allenamento #semprepositivi
Carobbio, himself charged with extensive involvement in the scandal, claimed that Siena owner Massimo Mezzaroma had indirectly sent a message to players during the technical meeting before a match between Siena and Novara, asking them to ensure that the game ended in a draw to help Mezzaroma make a big profit on a bet he had made.
The game ended 2-2 and Carobbio testified that Conte was present when the message was passed to the players before the match. Carrobio also claimed that the result of the last game of the season, in which Siena lost 1-0 to AlbinoLeffe, was arranged beforehand after Siena’s assistant manager asked him and another player to “contact someone at Albino-Leffe to arrange a return match agreement”.
Further allegations were made against Conte over Siena’s 5-0 win over Varese this season, notably that he knew they had been asked to lose and had not reported the match.
