Thomas Frank is a Danish professional football coach and former amateur player, who is head coach of Premier League club Brentford. After 18 years in youth coaching, which included spells as manager of multiple Danish national youth teams, Frank became a senior manager with Brøndby IF in 2013.
Thomas Frank is the head coach of Brentford and the first person to lead the Bees into a top-flight season since 1946/47.
The Danish coach worked his way up through the system in his home country, managing youth teams for more than a decade, including spells at national level.
Frank’s first senior position in football 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.
In his first full campaign in charge of the Championship club, Frank led Brentford to third but suffered heartache, losing the 2019/20 play-off final to Fulham.
However, they were not to be denied a year later, when after finishing third again, they overcame Swansea City in the play-off final, becoming the 50th club to compete in the Premier League.
