Edy Reja, who joined Serie A side Lazio in February 2010, has apparently resigned from his position as coach of the Biancocelesti -- and get this, he did it via fax. Alex McLeish and his email resignation from Birmingham City has nothing on this man. Reports note that the resignation was prompted by the breakdown of Reja's relationship between President Claudio Lotito and sporting director Ighli Tare.
Of course, there's absolutely no reason to believe that the deterioration of the relationship was due to Lazio's downward spiral the past few weeks. The side lost the first leg of their Europa League tie with Atlético Madrid, allowing three away goals to the Spaniards. At the weekend, they were decimated by Palermo, 5-1.
It seems Reja won't completely leave Lazio in the lurch, however. He's agreed to be on the bench for the opposite leg of the Europa League tie, Thursday in Madrid.
