As a French expert, Arsene Wenger has been leading Arsenal for 22 years and has played a significant role in shaping the history of English football. Now, he is working for FIFA and specializes in the development of football around the world. He will now focus his efforts on India and its football industry. During his visit to India, he met with the president of the football association, Kalyan Chaubey.
India has always fascinated me,” said Wenger. “My goal is to improve football in the world, and it’s impossible that there isn’t a country like India on the world football map with 1.4 billion inhabitants.” Wenger believes that India has great strengths and fantastic characteristics that make him optimistic about what can be done there.
“It’s absolutely fantastic to have this opportunity,” he said. “My team and I are very motivated to help with the growth of football in this country.” His main goal is to convince people that there is a goldmine here, but it is currently not fully explored and exploited.
Igor Štimac, who is currently coaching India’s U23 national team, will also play a role in this project. The bronze “fiery” has been on the bench for India since 2019 and won 19 times, drew 13 times, and lost 14 games in 46 games so far.
