ROME — Italy coach Antonio Conte is seeking a hearing before prosecutors in Cremona investigating him for match-fixing.
Prosecutor Roberto Di Martino tells The Associated Press that lawyers for the Italian football federation made the request recently.
Conte was among 130 people formally notified by state prosecutors in February that they are under investigation for match-fixing in a case that has stretched back nearly five years.
Conte is being investigated for committing sports fraud when he coached Siena in 2010-11.
Conte, who has denied wrongdoing, already served a four-month sports ban in the case.
Di Martino also says he has been contacted by the London-based Tennis Integrity Unit over a related match-fixing inquiry into Italian players Daniele Bracciali and Potito Starace.
