The Gunners legend wants to prioritise coaching standards with the use of extra technology and better courses to help former players, among others, make the grade away from playing.
Wenger said: ‘Anyone can be a coach, but telling someone exactly what they have to do, exactly how to do it and even telling them when to do it, that takes knowledge, experience and education. That’s why it’s very important that we focus on the quality of education.
‘It’s a question of both quantity and quality. We need to keep working on the quality of coaches and, even more importantly, on coach educators, who are the people developing these courses and working with players both young and adult, male and female.
‘What FIFA is doing in supporting educational programmes around the world is really positive.
‘The big task facing us is to get these messages out there, and to get support through these programmes so we can develop the best players and coaches for the future.’
