Arsene Wenger thinks the World Cup is about to become an even bigger tournament.

With the politics of voting for a new president at the forefront of his reasoning, Arsenal’s manager says a 40-side World Cup is on the menu.

While he claims the change will come for “the next World Cup”, you have to think he means the next cycle, as 2018 qualifying is underway.

Wenger says they need to give more berths to Africa without taking them away from Europe. And Sepp Blatter was already using more berths for Oceania and Asia as a support chip.
