Morten Olsen does not believe that holding World Cups every two years will solve any of the problems in football today. Nor does he think it will improve it. In an interview with 'TV3 Sport', he attacked FIFA because he understands that its only objective is monetary and he had no problem mentioning Arsene Wenger to say that he disagrees with him.
"It's all about making more money. I find it incomprehensible that a football man like Arsene Wenger is in favour of such a structure. I also think that not so many teams should take part in the World Cup," he said, before arguing his point by alluding to the 2018 tournament in Russia.
"We saw in Russia 2018 that 32 participants are too many. We witnessed the most boring final since 1990 in Italy. Soon, there will be twice as many participants. FIFA prioritises quantity over quality with the risk of creating a tournament without interesting matches," predicted the strategist, who puts quality before quantity.
Although the proposal of a World Cup every two years gained momentum in the months after it came to light, the truth is that it has been losing momentum. The novelty it brings is the main reason for its fame, but many footballers and coaches have already taken a public stance against it due to the tightness of the current football calendar.
