What's the difference between a sporting director, director of football and a technical director

I really have no idea and I'm curious to know the differences.

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with responsibilities or the structure of the club. Ignore "Sporting director" as it is not used in England. The DoF would typically have broader responsibilities extending to all footballing activities - youth etc.. Technical Directors tend to focus on running the scouting for the first team.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks ed technical director sounds pretty pointless tbh.

Please pardon my ignorance ed, but is it usually a case of one or the other (DoF or technical director) with clubs or do you sometimes see clubs having one each? The only reason I ask is technical director sounds quite limited?


{Ed002's Note - If the club has a strange organisation like Arsenal you could have both - but that has fouled up their recruitment.}

A case of too many cooks then ed? So with regards to the scouting, if phelan is appointed would it be him who sets the scouts assignments, ie the type of player wanted, and would reports then go to him? Sorry for the questions. Not sure how this works at all!

Thanks for explaining.
