Brentford manager Thomas Frank has responded to speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool by distancing himself from such reports.
As Jurgen Klopp prepares to leave Anfield at the end of the season, Liverpool have emerged as a potential destination for several managerial candidates.
Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso has emerged as the leading candidate for the upcoming managerial vacancy on Merseyside.
This strong association stems from Leverkusen’s impressive performance at the top of the table in the German league, as well as Alonso’s illustrious playing career with the club.
On the other hand, Frank has also been touted as a potential candidate for the position. He has garnered attention for his work in transforming Brentford into a competitive team in the Premier League since their promotion in 2021.
Despite the speculation surrounding Frank, it’s worth noting that he recently extended his contract with Brentford. The new agreement, finalised in late 2022, binds him to the West London club until the summer of 2027.
Speaking on the links with Liverpool, Frank told Sky Sports: “There’s a lot rumours out there.
“I think we all have kind of an ego and the ego likes that little bit of sugar but at the end of the day I’m at Brentford.
“I’m very happy here. Do I have ambitions? Yes. Am I going to stay at Brentford forever? Maybe but probably not.
“So who knows what’s going to happen in the future. What I know is that I’m here at Brentford and I’m very happy with it.”
