Napoli coach Edy Reja is facing the axe.

Mediaset says a seventh consecutive defeat on the weekend means the chances of Reja being in charge next season at Napoli are virtually zero.

Napoli sports chief Pierpaolo Marino is already considering replacements, with Massimo Allegri, the Cagliari coach, and Siena's Marco Giampaolo both on his shortlist.

Former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has also been considered, however his wage demands will prove too rich.
