BARI, Italy (AP) — Juventus coach Antonio Conte reportedly has been cleared of more match-fixing, this time stemming from when he coached Bari from 2008 to 2009.

Italian media reports that Bari prosecutors are wrapping up their inquiry and are in the process of notifying 20 people that they are under investigation — and Conte is not one of them.

Inter Milan and former Bari defender Andrea Ranocchia also reportedly has been cleared.

Conte and Ranocchia could still be called in for questioning by the Italian soccer federation.

Among those named as being under investigation are current Torino and former Bari goalkeeper Jean Francois Gillet and Conte's former assistant, Cristian Stellini.

Conte was banned for four months this season for failing to report fixing with Siena two seasons ago. He maintains he is innocent.
