Does anyone have any advice about using a Director of Football? I must have the options wrong or something because I find mine to be little better than useless. He frequently rejects bids I would have accepted, fails to sign players I've lined up and just blunders about costing me time and money. I'd love to delegate some of the recruitment tasks to him but I don't trust him enough to do it!
Ever since I had my staff hand out a €110k per week contract to a garbage player in my second team I have never let anyone other than myself handle anything related to recruitment and contracts. Sometimes at the start of a new save, I forget to change these responsibilities and the DoF starts offering contracts to crappy youthful free agents, immediately reminding me to change these settings.
So in short, I don't trust them in the slightest and rather go through the annual slog of renewing contracts myself. Besides, player recruitment is one of my favourite aspects of the game so I don't want to hand this over to my staff.
