Frank: There’s unfinished business at Brentford. We can go much further than that

Frank spoke about signing a new contract at Brentford during an exclusive interview with Sky Sports.

“I feel very privileged to be able to stay here for a long time,” he said.

“Of course, in football, you don’t know about tomorrow; 2027 is just a number, so in three days I’ll probably be out of here! No, it’s a privilege because it’s not certain you’ll get a new contract at the club you work for.

“I am very happy and said earlier this year that I still feel, deep down, that there is a lot of unfinished business here at Brentford, even though we have been very successful, all together, in past years with some great achievements: the pitch New, promotion, attack in the first season in the Premier League and now we are in a good position in the league so far.

“I work in a place where there’s an incredible alignment top to bottom and everyone’s on the same page, everyone wants to attack, everyone wants to be better, and that culture and environment inspires me, and I’m excited to be a part of that.”

The Dane has admitted that Brentford’s high ceiling and progression space helped influence his decision.

He added: “The most important thing for me is that I can see that we can progress a lot more. The strategies are there. We want to develop, we want to build, we want to add layers every day. The club is ready to do that and they want the same. I have great collaboration and daily collaboration with Phil Giles Athletic Director, Lee Dykes Technical Director, and of course [owner] Matthew Benham – That’s huge.

“With the coaching staff, we’ve been together for a long time now and, most importantly, we have a great team of players that I really enjoy working with and constantly want to improve and improve, so I think there have been a lot of positives.

“When you get that feeling of a special place with an atmosphere where people come in every single day with a smile on their face, so much energy, so much determination to want to get better, and everyone is pushing in the same direction, then you need to really protect and take care of it.

“If you get into another club, you need to build something new, which can also be interesting, but I think sometimes you need to be aware of what you need to get to, and much more to achieve here.

“I will do my best at the moment. Enjoy every day, try to improve and develop the club and I every day and hope we can achieve other magical moments.”

Barring a 5-1 display of terror at Newcastle and a 4-0 defeat away to Aston Villa, Brentford nullified any speculation as to whether they were about to be the next victims of the legendary ‘Season Two Syndrome’ by the time the Premier League was suspended. for the World Cup last month. If this is not the case already, then it seems that they have largely established themselves as part of the furniture on the upper flight.

And who can forget the way they entered the break? Days after an embarrassing Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out defeat to Gillingham, they went into the Etihad as complete underdogs, but failed to break out and came away with a fully deserved 2-1 victory over reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank says striker Ivan Toni is fully focused on his Boxing Day match against Tottenham despite being charged with more than 260 alleged breaches of betting rules.

Just a few days later, it was revealed that Toney had been charged with over 232 alleged violations of betting rules between February 2017 and January 2021.

He was part of Brentford’s trip to Spain earlier this month and played an active role in mid-season friendlies against Bordeaux, Celta Vigo and Wolfsburg, but then came the news that he had been charged with 30 alleged breaches of the FA’s betting rules.

If the allegations against him are proven, the attacker could face a lengthy ban. Given the fact that he’s scored 11 of Brentford’s 26 goals in all competitions so far this season – with Brian Mbeumu and Yoann Wissa following with three each – you get the feeling the Bees will somewhat watch over his shoulder in regards to developments in the saga.
