Brentford coach Thomas Frank

Brentford coach Thomas Frank says there is no chance of him being lured away from the EFL Championship club this season, so much so that he would ignore an offer from even a top-flight side.

The Dane has done some sterling work at Griffin Park since becoming head coach in October 2018 (he replaced Dean Smith, who left for Aston Villa) and most recently led Brentford to a 1-0 away win over Middlesbrough in the Championship this past weekend.

The 45-year-old ex-Brondby coach says the current project totally captivates him – along with the prospect of leading his team into a new era in a new stadium next season.

“I would say I’m so committed to Brentford this season,” said Frank when asked how he would feel if another club made an approach for him.

“You know, the last season at Griffin Park, going into a new stadium, everything is so interesting so I would say ‘Sorry, call me in three years’ time.’

“I’ve just been to visit the new ground and it’s looking amazing.

“In football, it’s very very difficult to find places like Brentford – the unique togetherness, the top strategy that we have and a clear plan, and calmness. You don’t find that in a lot of places.

“I would say I’m very pleased and very humble to be here and I can only see myself being here.”

Brentford will be in League Cup action tonight when they face Cambridge United at home, while on Saturday 17 August they will host Hull City for their next Championship clash.
