ROME (AP) -- Juventus coach Antonio Conte will be questioned over his alleged role in the Italian match-fixing scandal on July 13.

Conte, who coached Juventus to the Serie A title last season, is under investigation for alleged wrongdoing while in charge of Siena in 2010-2011.

The Italian soccer federation prosecutors will question Conte either in Rome or Chatillon, where Juventus will hold its preseason training camp.

The finger was pointed at Conte during the testimony of Filippo Carobbio, who played under Conte at Siena. Carobbio will be questioned again July 10.

Siena president Massimo Mezzaroma's hearing will take place on the same day as Conte's.

Napoli goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis, part of Italy's Euro 2012 squad, will be questioned on Thursday and Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri the day after. Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella's hearing takes place on July 9.
