Wenger

Arsene Wenger says the UEFA Nations League should be scrapped, saying that holding the World Cup and the European Championship every two years would be “more appropriate for a modern world.”

Currently, the Eurocup and the World Cup are held every four years and the Nations League was conceived to give international teams a greater number of competitive matches between those tournaments.

Wenger, FIFA Head of Global Football Development, says the average fan doesn’t care or even understand the Nations League.

“We need to get rid of the League of Nations and find clearer events that everyone understands,” he told Bild. “If you ask people on the street what the Nations League is, you won’t find many who can explain it.

“We need to have as few events as possible,” he added. “A World Cup and a European Championship every two years would probably be more appropriate for a modern world.”

Wenger says that all qualifying games must be played in a single month, making it easy to sell rights to broadcasters and sponsors. He also revealed that FIFA had already discussed the idea of ​​more frequent major tournaments, but rejected the idea for fear that they would lose their glamor.

“I always tell people who say this that the image is not linked to the time you wait before playing again, but to the quality of the competition,” he said. “After all, people also watch the Champions League every year.”

He added: “Personally, I think it would be a big step forward.”
