Conte and De Laurentiis deferred

Juventus boss Antonio Conte and Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis have been deferred to the disciplinary commission for varying offences.

Conte, currently serving a four-month touchline ban, could be punished as a result of his Press conference on August 23.

The tactician, who was answering questions after initially being handed a 10-month suspension, is charged for bringing into question the reputation of the sporting justice system.

It is also alleged that he raised doubts about the impartiality of the decisions made ​​and the work of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office.

De Laurentiis, meanwhile, could be sanctioned for two separate incidents.

The first was on July 4 when he verbally offended journalists who asked him questions outside of the Lega Calcio offices.

He’s also been deferred for Napoli’s decision to not attend the presentation ceremony after the Super Cup Final defeat to Juventus in August.

The Azzurri squad left the pitch after the game in protest to a number of refereeing decisions that went against them.

Possible punishments could range from a fine to a ban.
