Gennaro Gattuso could be sacked if Napoli lose against Juventus tomorrow and Aurelio De Laurentiis has already lined-up potential replacements.
The Azzurri sit sixth in the Serie A table and are three points off top four with a game in hand.
Gennaro Gattuso’s side have lost two of the last three Serie A games and faced elimination from the Coppa Italia semi-finals at hands of Atalanta earlier this week.
The Italy World Cup winner could be sacked if Napoli lose against Juventus at the Stadio Maradona tomorrow, reports Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Rome-based paper reports Rafa Benitez is the leading candidate to replace Gattuso, should the former Milan coach be sacked.
According to Tuttosport, there are also other candidates for the job, such as Roberto De Zerbi, Ivan Juric and Vincenzo Italiano, but each one of them would only move to the Stadio Maradona at the end of the season.
