Former Netherlands striker Marco van Basten has been appointed as FIFA chief officer for technical development. In his new capacity, van Basten, 51, will be heading up all technical areas ranging from football technology innovation to refereeing and will officially start his new role next week. “It’s a great honour for me to be appointed for this assignment,” said the 1992 FIFA World Player of the Year who won the European Championship and two European Cups during his career. “I hope to be able to give my contribution to ensure that football remains the number one sport in the world. “Football is spectacular and it has to stay spectacular in every sense. We all love this sport. That’s why I will work hard to develop football technically in the way that our sport will give the fans and players emotions and joy.”
