Should I bother hiring a Technical Director in Football Manager?

Technical Director in Football Manager 2020

The Technical Director sounds very important, but do they even do much in Football Manager? Don’t they just mimic the Director of Football?

For any regular Football Manager player, the introduction of new staff members in each edition of the simulator can be tough to keep up with. Football Manager 2020 introduced a whole new role to the game, and in truth, many don’t know who or what they do. 

The Technical Director in Football Manager


So, your Technical Director might seem like just another wage to pay but they are a crucial part of your club in FM. If you want to run a fully functioning outfit with plenty of advice being given by staff you can trust, you need to get a good and reliable TD.

To start off with, we recommend that you get one because they offer you wide-ranging backroom advice. For anyone who is building a new coaching staff, having a Technical Director with a similar vision to you is vital. Make sure they have a similar viewpoint on the game in terms of their coaching style, and you can find that you can get along with each other very well indeed.

The Technical Director is someone that you need because they give you such an edge in keeping staff progressing. They will regularly come to you with ideas about what staff should be on put on a training course, or how a member of your staff is progressing. If your staff are the ones giving you feedback on the playing staff, the Technical Director is the one doing so for all of your staff.

Basically, you’ll grow to see him as the boss of your coaching, scouting, and medical departments. While your Head of Youth Development is a senior part of the youth development scene, and your Director of Football & Head Scout play a major role in the recruitment department, your Technical Director tells you how good they are doing their own jobs. So, without one, you don’t have a great idea about staff development, progression, or understanding overall.

Bring your staff along on a journey


Think of your Technical Director, then, as the Director of Football for your staff. They can seek out and hire new staff for your youth teams and your senior team. If you don’t want to hunt down a new DoF, scout, physio, or even coaching team, then get your Technical Director on the job hunt for you.

They are going to be brilliant for making sure your bench and your backroom is as strong as is possible. However, I don’t recommend letting them hire/fire your own backroom staff like your Assistant Manager, Coach, Fitness Coach, or Goalkeeping Coach. Pick these yourself and make them part of the fabric of your legacy at any given club.

Every other position, though, is one we recommend letting the Technical Director handle. They’ll often do a good job of finding coaches for every sector of the club and improving it. So, the Technical Director is very much a member of your backroom team who is worth the wage they earn. The time they can save you in accurately finding staff is an essential part of Football Manager, and I recommend you use it to your advantage.
