Napoli checked 'secret Conte tunnels'

There are reports Napoli demanded the FIGC perform checks on the Juventus Stadium to ensure there were no ‘secret tunnels’ Antonio Conte could go through.

It is claimed in today’s papers that Napoli staff requested the investigation into the arena ahead of last night’s 2-0 result.

Conte has been suspended all season so far due to the betting scandal, so must watch games from the stands even though he can train the side regularly during the week.

Conte is visible during the match behind a Plexiglas screen in the VIP box at the Juventus Stadium, but Napoli insisted on checks to ensure there were no ‘secret tunnels’ allowing him to access the locker room at half-time.

It is reported Juve were irritated by the request, further damaging the already tense rapport between these clubs.

Juventus also lodged a complaint after Napoli fans vandalised the bathrooms and tunnels around the away area of the stadium, purposely flooding the toilets, smashing pipes, sinks and doors.
