There is a need for Nigeria to have a football playing pattern hence, the move to sign a Technical Director, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said.
Chairman of NFF's Media and Publicity Committee, Emeka Inyama said this at a Press Conference on Thursday in Abuja.
Inyama explained that the decision for the NFF to sign a Technical Director had nothing to do with the much publicised disagreement between it and the Super Eagles' Head Coach, Stephen Keshi.
He revealed that the football tactician, when employed will design a pattern for Nigeria's football which would be adopted by all the National football teams.
"What we have always said is that there is a need for us to develop a structure and a template for football development in this country. That is the beauty of a technical director. He doesn't coach the teams but he will be able to say this is the mode of scouting, equipment and so on.
"Every federation in the world has it. Even at club level, they do it and I don't think there is anything wrong with it."
He assured that the tactician will not interfere with the job of Head Coach of the Super eagles, Keshi.
Inyama did not however, reveal the time the Technical Director would be hired.
