World Cup every two years seems not a bad idea for the Belgian midfielder.
The Man City midfielder explains that FIFA’s proposal to organise World Cups every two years was ‘not a bad idea.’
This biennial World Cup scheme was proposed by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who currently works as a chief of Global Football Development.
But the proposition has been widely criticised by UEFA and the Premier League.
The 30-year-old said: “At the start of the season, I had a meeting with FIFA and Arsene Wenger to explain to us what they wanted to do.
“To do something like that, federations of all countries, UEFA and FIFA have to coordinate. Everyone has to work together.
“I insisted on a second point: I told them that they had to keep a real period of rest for us, the players, at the end of the season. The idea isn’t bad in itself, as long as everyone works together.”
