The Liverpool defender said he and his Kop teammates will hold showdown talks with the former Arsenal boss.

VVD said: “A meeting is planned for the near future between Liverpool players, including myself, and Arsene Wenger.

“It is to do with the plan to stage the World Cup finals every two years, and we will give our opinions as players.

“I think that when senior players from Liverpool and other clubs give their opinions, the authorities have to listen to us.

“The numbers of matches are piling up. On the one hand, playing in games is the greatest thing we can do.

“But we also need to take a good look at players' health and safety, and the gap between the end of one season and the start of another.

“That is in order that everybody can recover properly."
