Henk Ten Cate has been sacked as an assistant manager by Chelsea, according to reports.
The Dutchman arrived at Stamford Bridge in October to assist Avram Gra.
However, after Grant was sacked by Chelsea last Saturday, there were suggestions that Ten Cate would also be on his way out of the club.
Ten Cate, though, claimed earlier in the week that he had been assured that he still had a role at the club.
He told Voetbal International: “Half an hour before Chelsea made the message about Grant officially known, I was called by the chief executive Peter Kenyon.
“He informed me that the departure of Grant will not affect me. I’d rather go on that than all those newspaper reports.
“That appointment was long planned and therefore separate from recent developments.
“In January I had one such evaluation and then we said we would do again after the season. I have a contract until 2010.”
