Rohr is difficult to impress, I want you all to just play to the level of your quality.” 

He also discouraged the players from accepting offers to play in the “obscure leagues in Europe” as he revealed that the NFF has plans for the players in the local league.

“We have plans for the home-based players and we don’t want you to move to the obscure leagues in Europe. We will soon stop issuing ICT to our top league players going to these clubs. Our dream is to see you play for the top clubs in Europe.
