Ex-Barcelona, West Ham United and Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano has thrown his weight behind plans to change the FIFA World Cup tournament from one that's held every four years to one that takes place on a two-year basis.
Javier Mascherano showed his support for the new proposal to make the FIFA World Cup a two-year tournament rather than a four-year tournament in an interview monitored by John Cross of the Daily Mirror. According to him, he had reservations about the new proposal on the FIFA World Cup tournament until he spoke to Frenchman Arsene Wenger and other colleagues.
Ex-Arsenal manager Wenger has championed the new proposal as he's pushing for it to happen. Javier Mascherano spoke well about Wenger whom he described as a visionary. The retired Argentine national team player is in awe of what Wenger has been able to achieve in the game.
