I know this has probably been asked, but why not? I have a friend that has no interest at all on watching games and giving instructions to his players. He just likes to watch his team develop. Then, he always goes on holiday before the matches so he doesn't wastes his time. I'm not exactly asking for a chairman role, which would have to add many other features that are not in the game. A director would only take care of transfers, media, manager hiring, player's talk and stuff. Of course, he would have some influence (or not, depending on the manager he hires) on the team's decisions.
