Premier League boss flattered by Arsenal links but he’s ‘insanely happy’

Thomas Frank has insisted that he is “insanely happy” at Premier League newcomers Brentford even though he is flattered by reports linking him to Arsenal.

Frank has been Brentford boss since 2018. He stepped in to replace Dean Smith, who left the club to join Aston Villa.

The 47-year-old led them to the Championship play-off final in 2018/19. They missed out on promotion to the Premier League as Fulham beat them at Wembley.



The Bees made this right last season as they got the better of Swansea City to earn promotion via the play-offs.

Brentford have made a strong start to the new Premier League season. They have three wins, three draws and just one defeat.

This start leaves them seventh in the Premier League after seven games. reported last month that were interested in Frank should they decide to part with .

Frank has told Danish outlet that despite these reports, he is “insanely happy” at Brentford:

“So, I understand that well, but… Arsenal and Man United. Wasn’t that how it was? I think I read that at some point,” Frank said.

“It’s very nice, but one thing is rumours, and the other is if they really wanted to contact me. Then we have to take it from there.

“I have a contact until 2023. I’m insanely happy at Brentford. [They are a] club that means a lot to me and where I have had great times.

“I enjoy working with our director of football, owners, players, staff and fans.

“It’s the club who must come to me, but now we must see what the future brings. I know we have a mutual respect and a good relationship with each other on that.”

“Arsenal are not going to be in the top four this season, they’re competing for fifth and sixth.

“They’re still in the hunt alongside Everton, West Ham, Spurs. West Ham are flying at the moment. I’ve had a bet that Arsenal will finish above both West Ham and Spurs.

“I think they’ll have a good season and I think you have to give Mikel Arteta time.

“It’s a situation where they’ve got to keep investing, they’ve invested a lot of money in the summer, whether it’s the right investment [remains to be seen]. I think the back four will be very important.

“I was with [former Arsenal manager] George Graham yesterday. If this Arsenal team can get that back four right like it was in his era, get the goalkeeper right. If you can keep the current back four fit and keep it solid. He might have a chance this year, Arteta.”

‘Ambitious’ Ranieri determined to save Watford from drop

Watford manager Claudio Ranieri is delighted to be back in the Premier League and is determined to keep the Hornets in the top flight.

The Italian manager joined the club following the sacking of Xisco Munoz before the international break.

He turns 70 years old next week but remains hungry as ever to succeed in management.



“Why not ?” said Ranieri.

“I feel good. Fortunately, I feel good. When I think about football, life is good. Football is my life.

“I am very happy to play in one of the best leagues in the world. I am an ambitious man and I hope to bring Watford to be safe at the end of the season and to improve.

“We have to be safe. The programme is very ambitious and then I hope it will be a fantastic end for Watford and our fans.”

Watford started the season relatively well, with Munoz’s sacking coming as a surprise to some. However, the club’s hierarchy has a reputation for sacking managers.

They are currently 15th in the Premier League, winning two of their first seven league fixtures.

“In Italy it is normal to change the manager,” Ranieri added.

“We have to do our best, I can’t think about the previous manager.

“Xisco was my player at Valencia, I hope he can find a new solution very soon.

“Now, I have to do my best for Watford.”

He believes that the Hornets’ managerial change has created some unpredictability going into the fixture.

: “It seems to always happen to us, I think, when teams are maybe going through a sticky patch and the manager changes before we play them. That makes them more unpredictable, I think.

“Obviously I think it’s always going to be tough. Whether they’re flying or they change the manager, it’s going to be tough. It’s the Premier League, there’s good teams and teams who are struggling are going to want to turn it around.”
