New Fulham boss Felix Magath wants Rene Meulensteen to stay as part of his coaching staff.
Ex-Bayern Munich boss Magath replaced the Dutchman, who won four of 17 games in charge, on Friday.
But yesterday a Fulham source insisted Meulensteen had not been axed and still has a future at Craven Cottage.
"No one's been sacked," the source told the Daily Star. "Felix is assessing and wants Rene to coach, but we'll see."
