Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been acquitted of sporting fraud.
The 46-year-old was accused of failing to report an attempt to fix a match against AlbinoLeffe when he was in charge of Serie B team Siena in 2011.
Prosecutor Roberto Di Martino had recommended a suspended six-month prison sentence but the current Italy coach was acquitted by judge Pierpaolo Beluzzi during a preliminary hearing on Monday.
Conte had denied any wrongdoing and his acquittal will allow him to lead Italy at Euro 2016 before moving to Stamford Bridge.
"I am highly satisfied with the court's acquittal of Antonio Conte," Italian Football Federation president Carlo Tavecchio said.
"Finally his position has been clarified and my confidence in him has never been in question. Now we are all the more focused on the Euros."
