Wenger, a former coach at Arsenal who is now the chief of global football development for FIFA, has been in contact with the Football Association to inquire about their thoughts on how to safeguard the future of the sport, with a particular emphasis on how to improve grassroots football and the transition into the professional game.

Wenger, who is 72 years old, will poll the opinions of all 211 national associations in order to gain insight regarding coaching, player development, and gaining access to playing fields.

Wenger is quoted as saying that “amateur football is a crucial foundational aspect of global football development.” [Citation needed] A robust amateur football system ensures that anyone who wants to play football has the opportunity to do so at any level, allowing all aspects of the game to thrive in that country. This is one way in which a country can become a global leader in the sport.

“The FIFA Amateur Football Programme, which is closely linked to the FIFA Talent Development Scheme, is part of our commitment to develop the base layers of the football pyramid, while providing all of our Member Associations with growth opportunities from a global perspective.”

Wenger will be able to put together a comprehensive report with the assistance of the findings from the survey that was conducted as part of FIFA’s Amateur Football Programme. Additionally, these findings will be incorporated into the Talent Development Scheme that is being implemented by the governing body to encourage more players to pursue a professional career in football.

Wenger’s high-profile role with FIFA saw him support a new-look global calendar, with the goal of holding the World Cup every two years. In addition, he has finished extensive research into automated technology that can be used in refereeing decisions. The World Cup will be held once every two years.

This weekend at Soccer Aid, the three-time winner of the Premier League will be back in the dugout as the manager of the Rest of the World team.

Following the conclusion of his 22-year run as Arsenal’s head coach, the 72-year-old retired from football management in 2018.
