Claudio Ranieri is still in a job for now after meeting Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon.

The Italian had feared Tuesday's summit at Stamford Bridge was to tell him he was being removed as coach of the west London club.

He had even been expecting to meet the club's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich but the Russian had other business commitments and decided at the last minute not to attend.

And in a surprise development, rather than discussing Ranieri's future, Kenyon simply wanted to discuss possible transfer dealings during the summer.

It actually looks like a decent manager they have got and he isn't going to take any crap. I think the players are going to be in for a shock and he said he wants to slim the squad down to at least 24 players so the big axe will fall in the summer.
