The technical director, sometimes also called a director of

technical development or a sports director is the person in

development programmes, therefore preparing the football of the

future. He proposes to the general secretary, the president and

possibly the executive committee (ExCo) a long-term vision and

develops a technical strategy over several years in order to

improve the level of the game within the country and achieve

identified targets on and off the pitch. He and his department are
