Brentford have been linked with a swoop for Mark Cooper, the manager of League Two side Forest Green Rovers.
The 47-year old is the son of former Leeds and England player Terry Cooper and has already managed a host of lower league clubs in his relatively short time as a manager. He made a name for himself with Tamworth and Kettering, before a move to Peterborough which lasted just 13 matches.
He’s later served time at Darlington and Notts County, as well as Swindon Town, before dropping out of the Football League. With the Gloucestershire side, he won the National League play offs in 2017 and is now on the cusp of a similar battle in League Two.
Does his recent success leave him as a challenger for the Brentford job? Or is this the sort of appointment they should avoid at all costs?
FLW looks at three reasons that the Bees need to steer well clear of Mark Cooper.
