Arsene Wenger’s calls for a change to the offside rules are seemingly set to bear fruit with the world governing body for football, FIFA, set to trial the new proposals.

Wenger has been vocal in his calls for the offside rules to be changed. The former Arsenal manager has served as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development since he left the Gunners in 2018.

VAR images of Lautaro Martinez’s goal that was chalked off for offside during the 2022 FIFA World Cup game between Argentina and Saudi Arabia.

Under the current dispensation, a player is often deemed offside when any part of his body that can play the ball is ahead of the last defender. This has often led to lengthy Video Assistant Referee(VAR) checks, with goals being ruled out due to the tightest of margins.
