ROME, April 13- The public prosecutor in Naples on Tuesday postponed proceedings in the match-fixing case against former Juventus supremo Luciano Moggi for a week when Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti should be called as a witness, the Ansa news agency reported.Moggi, who has already been convicted by the sporting justice in Italy for match-fixing, is being tried in a criminal court for sporting fraud relating to the 2006 Calciopoli scandal.

He was previously convicted on the evidence of numerous telephone conversations that were tapped by investigators in which he is heard discussing referees with the refereeing commission.

But his lawyers on Tuesday requested that 75 more conversations dating back to 2006 and before also be transcribed, leading to the postponement of proceedings until April 20.

Ancelotti was the AC Milan coach at the time of the scandal but despite being called as a witness there is a big chance he will not show, especially as his current team is involved in the English Premier League title race.
