Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher feels players are being made to suffer an 'an unreasonable and increasingly unsustainable football calendar' - but he is not convinced Arsene Wenger's biannual World Cup plan is the answer to the problem.

Wenger has been seeking the support of many top former players and Carragher is among those to have spoken to the ex-Arsenal manager about his plan to freshen up international football.

While Wenger was 'preaching to a converted audience' in Carragher in suggesting radical change, the pair disagreed over holding more World Cups and Carragher wants to see the Frenchman liaise with current players on his vision.

'The views of Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois carry far more weight than those playing 20 or 30 years ago.

The Belgian goalkeeper accused football's governing bodies of prioritising money over player welfare ahead of his nation's UEFA Nations League third-placed play-off against Italy.

'The most credible opinions are those of the contemporary, elite coaches and players who must deal with the constant physical and mental pressure of travelling around the world and delivering their highest performance levels 12 months a year,' Carragher added.

Club football, Carragher adds, remains 'vastly superior' and until the views and qualms of current players and coaches are addressed there will be a gridlock to bringing about 'radical' changes to the footballing calendar.
