Frank, Brentford’s prized target, content to stay put despite Chelsea’s alluring offer

Thomas Frank is a potential replacement for Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea, according to reports. The Brentford manager is not eager to make a switch, cautioning that new opportunities may not always be better.

Chelsea is on the hunt for their fourth permanent coach under Todd Boehly, following Pochettino’s sudden departure. The club is seeking a young, dynamic coach who can fit into their current system, with Kieran McKenna and Thomas Frank among the names in the mix.

Despite Brentford’s underwhelming performance in the 2023-24 season, Thomas Frank’s leadership has kept them safe from relegation despite key players being sidelined. Their stats in the Premier League show promise, ranking high in expected goals and expected goals against.

Frank has been with Brentford for nearly six years and although he hasn’t closed the door on new opportunities, he is content where he is. He acknowledges the allure of change but stresses the importance of being cautious as things may not always be as they seem.

Reports suggest that Chelsea is also eyeing Brentford’s set-piece coach, Bernardo Cueva, following concerns over the previous staff’s handling of dead ball situations. Brentford’s success in set-pieces this season showcases their strength in this area, potentially attracting Chelsea’s interest.
