Veteran coach Arsene Wenger (70) has been named FIFA's Chief of global football development.
The former Arsenal and Monaco coach would be responsible for the growth of the game for both men and women around the world and would also be the leading authority on technical matters, including potential changes to the sport's laws.
The new role brings Wenger back to the game for the first time since 2018, when he left Arsenal after 22 years in charge.
