Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned football governing body FIFA to restructure the sport’s international calendar.
The Frenchman believes that it’s the case of ‘now or never’ if FIFA wants to avoid potential stand-offs with clubs in future.
Wenger said: “We face a situation where it’s impossible for the players to get through a season and have rest.
“This kind of friction that it creates between the clubs, national teams and international competitions can create a split.
“One day the clubs could move away and say, ‘Enough is enough. We pay a huge amount of money for our best players so we’ll get them together ourselves and organise our own competitions’.
“It’s important that all of that gets on the table while we have the opportunity.
“It is now or never.”
