Grant remains on shaky ground at Chelsea

Chelsea coach Avram Grant's future at Stamford Bridge remains as shaky as ever, it has been revealed.

The Observer says his job is still not safe, according to a Stamford Bridge executive.

The source also claimed that club owner Roman Abramovich had been absent from many of Chelsea's recent games because he was "unhappy with the club's results".

"He is happier now, of course," the source said. "But it is still unclear what will happen regarding Grant's future. Mr Abramovich was not present on Wednesday for two reasons. The first is because he was in Moscow due to the changing political situation. But he has also been unhappy at the form of the team."

Grant created history by leading Chelsea to their first European Cup final, but even if the club were to win the competition and the Premier League, his future could still be in doubt, the source said.
