But it’s visible. They are in unison. battling for one another. They understand what it’s like to play for Brentford and Thomas Frank. He is skilled at bringing out the best in players.
“What a fantastic job he did. A manager to aspire to be like. to play for a Brentford team. Let’s face it, Thomas Frank belongs with the Spurs. He ought to be at an elite club. He’s a senior manager. It’s a blessing that Brentford has him. Every week, he consistently delivers quality work for them.
Underrated Thomas Frank
It should be mentioned that there are many excellent teams in the city, overwhelming the London club.
In addition, Brentford has one of the lowest budgets in the competition and doesn’t spend as much as the majority of the Premier League.
Nevertheless, they have steadied their position in the Premier League, finished outside of Europe in the previous campaign, and defeated Man City, the reigning champions, both at home and away in 2022–2023.
Frank also has no problem changing up their playing style. Whether that means being straightforward and forceful. or making their way between groups.
In any case, it amuses the impartial parties and elevates the man in the Brentford dugout to the status of one of the league’s most underappreciated coaches.
