Thomas Frank on the Brentford-success: Have a 'no dickheads'policy

There is certainly been a bit of Thomas Frank and Brentford in the past two months.

After a terrible start to the season was Brentford, which in addition to Thomas Frank at the helm also has six danes in spillertruppen, and fought to stay above the relegation zone in the second English series.

But with seven wins in the last ten matches have danskerklubben suddenly the game completely up in the battle for promotion to the Premier League.

In a major interview with The Mirror tells Thomas Frank, about the leadership style he has tried to implement in Brentford since he took over as head coach in 2018.

"I think that if you are more educated and can control your emotions, so you can better deliver your message," says Thomas Frank, and continues.

"If the performance is horrible, you obviously need to raise your voice. But you can't make it every Saturday. If you do it every Saturday, it loses its weight, and it will not have the same impact."

The Danish coach has had the need to maintain peace in his time at Brentford, where he earlier in the season was under massive criticism from both press and fans.

"I'm not on some social media, so I don't read anything about whether they like me or not like me. I feel not the severe criticism, as someone might come up with. But when we had our first bad period, and we lost eight out of ten games, then came you into a tailspin. But it is just as much my own ambitions, and the pressure one puts on themselves, that clutter," said Thomas Frank to B. T at the beginning of november.

Now is the mood about the Thomas Frank and his young Brentford team reversed, which culminated with a 7-0 victory over Luton two weeks ago, where the former FC Nordsjælland player Mathias Jensen, among others, came on scoringstavlen.

And according to the former Brondby coach due to the team's current success is the unity that prevails in the team.

"I will have good personalities. I have this "no dickheads" policy from the All Blacks-filisofien," says Thomas Frank.

the All Blacks philosophy, as the dane refers to, is derived from the New Zealand rugbylandshold, which focuses on the virtues of the players in the squad are also in place outside the track.

The philosophy of Thomas Frank tried to integrate in the Brentford team, which he believes is to create results in the long term.

"You must win and lose together. Unity is so important. I've been here for three years, and I believe we have a unique unity, and that is why it is so important that you have the right type of players with the right attitude," says Thomas Frank.

Brentford have climbed up to seventh place in the Championship, where they are just one point from the top six, which provides space in the playoffspillet for promotion to the Premier League.

They take Saturday at home against Fulham, which is one of the competitors in the fight for promotion.
