Arsene Wenger, a French expert who led Arsenal for 22 years and wrote the history of English football, is now working for FIFA and specializing in the development of football around the world. He will now focus his work on India and the development of football there. In India, Wenger met with the president of the football association, Kalyan Chaubey.
Wenger has always been fascinated by India and believes that it has great strengths and fantastic characteristics that make him optimistic about what can be done there. He sees potential in India’s football market, which has 1.4 billion inhabitants, but believes that it is currently not fully explored and exploited.
To help with this project, Wenger believes that Igor Štimac, who is the coach of India, will also play a role. Štimac has been on the bench for India since 2019 and at the same time leads the U23 national team. He has won 19 games out of 46 played so far, drawing 13 times and losing 14 games.
Overall, Wenger is excited about this opportunity to improve football in India and believes that there is a gold mine waiting to be discovered in their football market.
