Michael Dobson says Marwan Koukash has told the Salford players that he is not selling the club.
Speculation is growing that Koukash will walk away at the end of the year.
But Dobson told The Daily Star: “At this stage he said he is staying.
“He has been supportive all year and we have got to back that up with our performances and at the moment we aren’t.
“We will have to see what happens and it is out of our control what Marwan does. We can only go on what he has said.
“But whether he is here or not at the end of the year, we need to be in Super League so it is down to us.”
