Manager Bio

Thomas Frank is the head coach of Brentford and the first person to lead the Bees into a top-flight season since 1946/47.

Frank's first senior position in management came with Danish Superliga side Brondby IF in June 2013, finishing fourth and third in two full seasons in charge before departing the club in March 2016.

Brentford appointed Frank as assistant head coach in December 2016, working under Dean Smith, before the latter joined Aston Villa in October 2018.

Frank was promoted to head coach shortly after Smith's departure, guiding the Bees to an 11th-place finish at the end of the season.

His first full campaign ended in heartache, as they lost the 2019/20 playoff final to Fulham.

However, they were not to be denied a year later, when after finishing third again, they overcame Swansea City in the playoff final, becoming the 50th club to compete in the Premier League.

It would be a maiden season to remember for Brentford, who finished 13th in 2021/22 with a series of impressive results, including a 3-3 draw with Liverpool and a 4-1 win at Chelsea.

Frank would also be nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Season award.

In 2022/23 Brentford performed even better, as they finished ninth and only just missed out on playing in Europe.
