This is a list with the best Director's of Football in Football Manager 2023.
The Director of Football is one of the more weird staff roles in Football Manager and is one that isn't essential in your journey to success. In fact, in real life football a Director of Football usually is the one that hires the manager. In Football Manager however it is you who hires or fires the Director of Football.
As we already said, the Director of Football isn't necessary to sign or have in Football Manager. He can help you in certain areas of the game, making it easier for you to concentrate on the team and the matches. But, don't give him too much power, as the AI is still not strong enough to make the right choices for you.
But, he can make your life easier as you can delegate some stuff to him. For example offloading players. You can put players on a to sell list and he will be looking to offload them for you. Instead of you offering these players out to clubs, you can instruct the Director of Football to look for a suitable club that is prepared to meet your demands.
