FIFA named Marco van Basten as their chief officer for technical development on Friday, with president Gianni Infantino tasking the 1992 World Player of the Year to help “protect” the sport.

In his new role, which he will start this week, the Dutchman will head up all technical areas from football technology innovation to refereeing.

“Marco van Basten is football,” said Infantino in a statement.
