Lausanne, Switzerland | AFP |  Arsene Wenger has been named FIFA’s chief of global football development, the governing body announced on Wednesday.

In a statement, FIFA said 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”.

“Leaning on a highly distinguished coaching career, Wenger’s role will include a particular focus on coach education, while he will also offer invaluable contributions to an executive programme – currently in its inception phase – tailored to encourage former professional players to enter management and which will support them through the post-career transition and bridge the gap between managerial and technical positions in football,” FIFA said in a statement.
