Arsene Wenger introduces his revolutionary plans for football – it could change World Cup forever

Arsene Wenger has called FIFA for dramatic changes.

The former Arsenal boss has proposed to reduce the number of international matches in a season calendar, postponing them all to a single period in each year.

"The principle would be a grouping of qualifiers every year, and at the end of the season a major competition, World Cup or continental championship," the 71-year-old has told L'Equipe.

"Between the two qualifying windows, the player would stay in his club all year round. There must be less of a mix in the calendar between the periods of club football and periods of international football, and therefore fewer transcontinental trips for the players, for example.

"For the players, there will be no more matches, and there will be compulsory rest after the final stages, at least 25 days.

However, Wenger's main proposal remains holding the World Cup once every two years since 2028.

"What people want today are high-stakes, easy-to-understand competitions. It's a global project, for men's football, but also for women's football and youth competitions," he explained.

We're yet to see whether FIFA take any big decision regarding the issue. The truth is that these plans are being discussed within football's most influential organisation.
