GRANT McCann has cited miss­ing key train­ing ses­sions for Peter­bor­ough as the rea­son be­hind his de­ci­sion to go on an in­ter­na­tional break, as he set­tles into his new player-coach role.

The 33-year-old mid­fielder, who has 39 caps for North­ern Ire­land, has com­mit­ted him­self fully to Dar­ren Fer­gu­son’s side as they seek an in­stant re­turn to the Cham­pi­onship.

“I re­alised it was time to take a step back and let some of the younger lads come through,” he said.

“It’s not too much to do with my body, it’s miss­ing the prepa­ra­tion for Peter­bor­ough games, and sit­ting on the bench.”
