Juventus GM Beppe Marotta says they'll be standing by coach Antonio Conte after he was called to trial in the latest Italian betting scandal.

Conte and several members of his staff were charged with failing to report an attempted sporting fraud while at Siena as part of the investigation into a betting scandal.

"There is deep bitterness at seeing our members brought into the situation, as they are very professional and fair, so we believe in their good faith," Marotta said at the presentation ceremony for the Serie A 2012-13 calendar.

"We have handed the reins to Conte, we're happy with him and he will be Juventus Coach now and in future, regardless of the outcome of the sentence. We will find a solution."
