Thomas Frank has broken his silence on links between him and Erik ten Hag’s potential Manchester United replacement.

Reports earlier this week claimed that Brentford manager Thomas Frank was a serious contender to take over from Erik ten Hag should the Dutchman leave Manchester United this summer.

Frank has excelled during his six years as manager of Brentford. He has led the club from the Championship to become an established Premier League team and has beaten United on multiple occasions during their time in the top flight so far.

Ten Hag’s job is under threat after a poor second season in charge, and Frank is one of many managers who have been linked with the job over the last four months.

Speaking to Danish publication Bold, Frank has now addressed these rumours, explaining that although he is flattered by the interest, he is very happy at Brentford.

“First of all, I think it is flattering and a recognition of the work I’ve done,” Frank explained. “And I’m glad that others are noticing the work we are doing at Brentford. But, having said that, what goes on at Brentford is not a one-man show.”

Frank continued: “I am really happy where I am. It is close to being the perfect club to be at. I can see myself being here for many more years.

“I am close to the owner, to the sports director, everyone around the club. Brentford is a club where I really feel at home.”
