Thomas Frank responds to becoming ‘leading contender’ for Man Utd job

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has admitted that he is “flattered” by interest in him after reportedly becoming the frontrunner to replace Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. The current head coach at Old Trafford has come under increased pressure and the club’s new minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe may make a managerial change after the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester City.I’m really happy where I am. It’s close to being the perfect club to be at,” Frank told Bold. “I can see myself being here for many years to come. I’m close to the owner, to the sporting director. Everyone around the club. Brentford is a club where I really feel comfortable.”

When asked about any approaches from English rival clubs, he added: “Immediately, I think it’s flattering and a recognition of what I do. And I’m glad that others recognise the work we do at Brentford.

“That said, it’s not a one-man show about what’s going on at Brentford. I’m not going to comment on the rumours that have been about me. You shouldn’t believe everything you read in the papers.

The Bees have finished in ninth and 13th place in their two full seasons among English football’s elite, before can only finish as high as 15th after a campaign that was hampered by Ivan Toney’s suspension.

Frank’s stock remains high, however, having also been admired by Liverpool before agreeing on Feyenoord boss Arne Slot to replace Jurgen Klopp. But the 50-year-old insists that he is more than happy in west London.
