The most useless job in football.

 

Everything should be between the manager and the CEO/Chairman (depending on the structure of the club).

 

Yes you are right but the idea has not been denied as far as I have heard

It doesnt have to be a pointless job. The assumption would be that the DoF, scouts, and coaches can stay at a club for decade(s). The manager changes more frequently - its the nature of the role. This gives a solid continuity within the club behind the scenes, and links the football side.

 

Its a method used by Lyon, and although there is a bit more to it than that, they were playing in the third tier of French football when they were taken over around 20 years ago.

Is this still a role that NC thinks needs filling?

 

Don't think the job Director of football was ever mentioned. It was Sporting Director. That means it covers the new basketball, rugby, athletics and cycling teams that will become part of the Southampton family, as in Spain and Portugal :)
