Arsene Wenger defends plans to hold World Cup every two years

The Frenchman works as FIFA's head of global development after retiring from management in 2019 when he left the Gunners.

Wenger has now proposed that that the world football governing body hold the World Cup every two years, which has received some backlash in recent months.

However, the former Arsenal insists the plan is not about as he hopes to improve football worldwide.

"It's not about me, it is about the proposal to make football better, clearer, more simple and more meaningful to the world.

"I was a long-time manager at Arsenal and I felt always that the separation between international competition and club competition was not good enough.

"The risk is to make football better, and I'm ready to take that gamble."
