The 52-year-old, however, said he would take a final call after arranging his finances and discussing with his ward.

“My schedule allows me to travel. I am willing to go with ‘no cost’ to the Table Tennis Federation of India. Once Sathiyan returns from the Polish League on September 10, I will take a final call. I am also looking for private sponsors,” Raman told Sportstar on Thursday.
