Grant warns Chelsea stars futures are on the line

Chelsea boss Avram Grant has warned his players if he goes - he'll take several of them with him at the end of the season.

He called the players in for training on Sunday and read the riot act to the superstars at a special meeting.

A close friend of Grant told The Sun: "Avram believed he should take the blame as the manager.

"But he feels let down by the performance at Barnsley and told the players that they must improve or everyone will be in trouble.

"Chelsea have a lot of very well-paid individuals and some of them should realise that there is more at stake than just the coach's job."
