Brentford manager Thomas Frank has given his thoughts after celebrating his one year anniversary as manager of the Bees.
The Dane took over from Dean Smith in October of the 2018/19 season after his predecessor left to join Aston Villa and has held down the role since, hoping to challenge for the promotion with the Bees this time around.
“There’s been a lot of very good experiences away from home and at Griffin Park,” Frank told his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon, reported by the club’s official Twitter account.
“I’m enjoying it a lot and I think as a football club we have a great future to look towards. We work everyday to make the future as bright as possible.”
Since taking over at the helm of the West Londoners, the 46-year-old boasts a win percentage of just over 40%, averaging 1.3 points per game.
It is a record that will have taken a hit during the early stages of this season, with the Bees sat in 17th place with 11 matches played in the Championship, scoring just nine goals in the process.
This weekend sees them welcome Millwall to Griffin Park and they will be confident of picking up a precious three points to kick-start their season, against their fellow Londoners.
He may be a year into his tenure now but Frank’s job is far from safe given the start to the season that his side have had.
After an impressive Summer transfer window, much more was expected in the early stages of the campaign and whilst I think Frank should be given time to sort it out, he needs to start picking up results.
Millwall at home could be perfect chance to do that. A convincing win in a London derby and they could really find the wind in their sails afterwards.
