He said “It will be good for the players to meet with their families after a long European season”
NFF president Amaju Pinnick also added saying: “Rohr has the final say on this matter. I know other teams do it also but the buck rests on the coach’s table and what he says is final.”

According to him “It will help the players psychologically and keep them focused for the task at hand.”
