Arsene Wenger, the French expert who led Arsenal for 22 years and wrote the history of English football, has now joined FIFA and is specializing in the development of football around the world. His focus is currently on India, where he met with Kalyan Chaubey, the president of the football association.
Wenger expressed his fascination with India and spoke about his goal to improve football in the world. He believes that India, with its 1.4 billion inhabitants, has great strengths and characteristics that make him optimistic about what can be done there. He also spoke about Igor Štimac, who is the coach of India and leads the U23 national team.
Štimac has been on the bench for India since 2019 and has won 19 times, drawn 13 times and lost 14 games so far. Wenger believes that he will play a role in this project to help develop football in India.
Wenger’s main goal is to convince people that there is a gold mine here in India but it is currently not fully explored and exploited. He wants to help unlock this potential by working with his team and other experts in the field to develop football infrastructure and training programs.
