Neil Warnock has left plans to take his Cardiff City squad for a fracture to Tenerife.
Cardiff usually do not play again until they sponsor Watford until 22.
But Warnock believes that his players will benefit from time with their families following the death of the club record signing Emiliano Sala.
“After what has happened, I would rather cuddle my children and see my missus because it has been a long two weeks,” he explained.
“I have never understood anything like this in my own life and I have seen most things.
“They’ll all be representing on what has happened as well as your family is far more important than football just isn’t it?”
Argentine Sala, 28, was travelling in a light aircraft piloted by David Ibbotson, once the plane went missing on the English Channel on 21 January to Cardiff.
Sala’s body has been identified after it had been recovered by the shattered plane but the pilot is still missing and his family have found a fund raising appeal to find his body.
Cardiff City representatives attended Sala club Nantes’ match on Sunday against Nimes and laid also a tribute and flowers .
Warnock dedicated Cardiff’s striking 21 triumph at Southampton into Sala and midfielder Aron Gunnarsson stated the Argentine’s departure had”brought everyone together”.
“it’s been very difficult but that the boys have stuck together with everybody around the bar,” explained Gunnarsson.
“probably the main thing was for the family .
“Knowing that now, the pilot will be found and his family members can mourn.”
Cardiff’s triumph at Southampton moved them and has been their 2nd successive success.
