He said, “The reason is because nutritionist will tell you that too much spicy foods is not good for athletes.

“We have to observe what they tell us, and the medical team agreed that we cannot eat too much fat and too much spice.”

Rohr further revealed that there may be conditions that could alter the ban.

He said, “For instance, there can be an exception on Sunday the night we will be here, there will be a little Austrian music, perhaps a little African food, from Madam ambassador so we will see.”

Emery reveals number of players Arsenal will sign in January 

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has disclosed that the club will sign a centre-back when the transfer window opens in January.

Emery said this ahead of his side’s Europa League clash with Qarabag FK on Thursday night.

The Spaniard believes it would be a ‘good option’ for the Gunners to sign a centre-back after the North London club have had trouble with the position so far this season.

“I think if we can take one player to help us at centre-back, I think it’s a good option,” Emery was quoted by Daily Cannon as saying in a pre-match press conference.

“The transfer window is not easy. Laurent Koscielny is coming back and for the team, it’s very important he is coming back.

“Then we are going to wait and see how Konstantinos Mavropanos is improving with his injuries because he is also a centre-back who can help us.”

Emery added: “Another option we can play with two, with three, and (full-backs) Nacho Monreal and (Stephan) Lichtsteiner can play in this position.

“I prefer to use, if we can, a specialist centre-back.”
