Andre Villas-Boas could be shown the door at Chelsea BEFORE their Champions League clash with Napoli. The Mail on Sunday says Roman Abramovich's board had been expected to axe the Portuguese if the team failed to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit against Napoli in ten days' time.

But that decision could be brought forward after yesterday's dismal defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea have already made contact with former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez.

Benitez wants at least an 18-month deal to take over the reins. Chelsea, so far, have only discussed a deal to the end of the season.
