Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been named as FIFA's new Chief of Global Football Development.
The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2018 and has been linked with the vacancy at Bayern Munich.
He'll be responsible for overseeing and driving the growth and development of football for both men and women around the world.
"I very much look forward to taking on this extremely important challenge, not only because I have always been interested in analysing football from a broader perspective but also because FIFA's mission as world football's governing body is truly global," the 70-year-old said of his appointment.
"I believe that the new FIFA we have seen emerging in recent years has the sport itself at the very heart of its objectives and is determined to develop the game in its many different components. I know I can contribute to this objective and will put all my energy into this."
Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups in his two decades in North London and he's confirmed an approach from Munich to succeed Niko Kovac.
"First of all, I was never a candidate, I was approached but not in the running for the job," the Frenchman told beIN SPORTS.
"That is clear and definite, but it does not necessarily mean I am done with management."
