Claudio Ranieri has claimed he has “no problems” with Chelsea after the club reportedly reassured the Italian he will not be sacked in the summer.

Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich and chief executive Peter Kenyon met Ranieri on Tuesday after Sven-Goran Eriksson announced his decision to remain with England.

Eriksson confirmed he had held discussions with Kenyon regarding the managerial position at Chelsea, but although the Swede reject the overtures, the episode further undermined Ranieri’s credibility. However, Tuesday’s meeting had produced a compromise of sorts.

“The future can wait,’ said the Italian after the meeting.

“We are now all committed to get the most out of the rest of the season. There are no problems.”

Kenyon is believed to have been concerned that Ranieri would walk out on the club mid-season, hence his decision to placate the Italian.
