Pep Clotet could be about to takeover at Championship side Brentford after The Telegraph revealed that the Spaniard has been interviewed for the role.
The 38-year old, full name Josep Clotet Ruiz, has been Garry Monk’s assistant at the Liberty Stadium since May 2014 but has experience as a number 1, mainly in his homeland.
Brentford have been on the lookout for a new manager after their parted ways with Marinus Dijkhuizen in September but have seen an upturn in form under interim manager Lee Carsley.
Carsley has won four of his eight games in charge of the Bees and performances have improved significantly, since the former Everton midfielder took charge of the side.
However, he stated that he is not interested in the job on a full-time basis and Clotet is one of the front runners for the role after being interviewed, and he could take charge before the end of the month.
Brentford are currently 11th in the Championship and they have turned their season around under Carsley, and they will hope to close in on the play-off places when they host Nottingham Forest at Griffin Park next weekend.
Brentford fans…what do you make of the news? Would Clotet be a good choice for the role? Are you disappointed that Carsley has no interest in the job full-time? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
