Confirmed: Brentford announce successor to Dean Smith

Brentford have confirmed Thomas Frank as the club’s new manager, with the 45-year-old stepping up from his position as Assistant Head Coach.

The Dane, who has previously managed Brondby in his home country, has spent the past few years working with Dean Smith and has been seen as a positive influence on the team.

And, with Smith having departed for Aston Villa last week, the Bees have decided to promote from within, with Frank landing the top job.

Speaking to the official site, Co-Director of Football Rasmus Ankersen feels it was the right choice given his familiarity with the club.

Thomas knows the Club’s strategy inside out and he is both respected and supported by players and staff at the Training Ground.”

He has played a major role in the development of our style of play over the past couple of years and we believe he is ready for the job as Head Coach.”

Frank is taking over a side that currently sit seventh in the table, just one point outside the play-offs.

His first game in charge will come this weekend at Griffin Park as Brentford host Bristol City.

The Verdict

This is a move that many expected and it’s one that makes sense.

Frank has clearly had an influence on the setup in the past few years and it’s one that has worked very well, so he knows what he’s stepping into.

There will be some slight concerns as to how he handles the step up but overall he seemed a logical choice and everyone will be looking forward to his first game on Saturday.
