FIFA's Chief of Global Development Arsene Wenger wants to see changes brought into the interpretation of offside before the start of Euro 2020 in June.

The former Arsenal manager wants the rule to state that players can't be offside if a part of their body that they can score a goal with is in-line with the last defender.

As such, a player couldn't be ruled offside if their hand was marginally closer to the goal than an opposing player, as the ball was played through, as you can't score with that part of the body.

"The most difficult (issue) that people have is the offside rule," Wenger told reporters.

"You have had offsides by a fraction of a centiemetre, literally by a nose. It is the time to do this quickly.

"There is room to change the rule and not say that a part of a player's nose is offside, so you are offside because you can score with that.

"Instead, you will be not offside if any part of the body that can score a goal is in line with the last defender, even if other parts of the attacker's body are in front.

"That will sort it out and will no longer have decisions about milimetres and a fraction of the attacker being in front of the defensive line."

Wenger's comments follow on from Premier League chief executive Richard Masters, who said earlier this month that the interpretation of the offside rule should be looked at, after a poll in the UK found that a majority of people supported the retention of a tweaked VAR system.
