There has been heightened speculation about Kean's future since the club's relegation from the Premier League, but even after the Scot travelled to India for meetings with the club's owners, nothing has been decided on his immediate future.

Rao confirmed to Sky Sports: "Still everything is in confusion so I would say in the next month we will have a proper situation to talk about."

"In the next month let us see what happens. We are talking about various things, so many, about the manager, about the players, about staff, about the club. Nothing will be said right away so I would say kindly bear with us for some time and then the whole picture will be clear.

"Getting relegated is not good news for anybody and we have to come back very strongly, and I hope that by taking the right decisions we have to come back at any cost. Right now we are totally in shock so let us take it step by step. We are still rectifying the whole thing as a club and we are in the middle of the process."
