Brentford manager Thomas Frank makes extraordinary board plea to keep star players at club

Thomas Frank wants to keep all his star players at the club after what has been a very good first season in the Premier League.

The club are preparing to take on Tottenham over the weekend but the Bees have enjoyed a hugely remarkable campaign in their very first season in the world’s best league.

There have been calls for Toney to get a look in at England and rumours continue to link him to a possible big money move away from the club this summer.

The arrival of Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen has lifted the club both on and off the field and the results have been impressive.

Bryan Mbeumo has been great also with four goals and seven assists and even though he’s barely had the attention like Toney and Eriksen, he’s been as effective as all of them.

Clubs continue to be linked with most of the Brentford players but manager Thomas Frank says his bosses will have to help him keep them and build on from this season.

He said: “Hopefully with the money for staying in the Premier League, I think we will do what we’ve done before and try to improve the team a bit next year as well.

“I think every club in the world except eight clubs are selling clubs. I will not say that we are not, but if you ask me, I don’t want to sell anyone.”

Brentford are 12th on the Premier League table and will take on top four chasing Tottenham at the Brentford Community Stadium with Christian Eriksen coming up against his former club .

Thomas Frank has done a remarkable job with the Bees genuinely threatening a top ten finish which will be a stuff of legends win - their very first season in the top flight.
