Tottenham ‘discussing Thomas Frank’ as Brentford ‘expect’ Daniel Levy approach

Kane can absolutely win a trophy at Spurs, says Levy

Tottenham reportedly ‘admire’ Brentford boss Thomas Frank as Daniel Levy continues his search for a new manager. Frank is so well-liked among Spurs chiefs that Brentford are supposedly bracing themselves for an approach for the Dane. 

Julian Nagelsmann became the latest available coach to pull out of the race to become the next Spurs head coach. Former boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to take the Chelsea job, while Vincent Kompany has signed a new contract with promoted Burnley. 

Spurs must therefore seek alternatives and are reportedly interested in Danish boss Frank. The Brentford manager has previously been linked with the North Londoners, but they could now step up that interest. 

Frank’s name is apparently ‘increasingly’ being raised during conversations. Brentford are allegedly expecting communication from Spurs over whether the 49-year-old could be prised away.

Journalist Alex Crook told TalkSPORT: “It leaves Tottenham fans wondering in what direction they’re going in. We know from our own [presenter] Alan Brazil that Mauricio Pochettino was shocked that Daniel Levy didn’t pick up the phone and talk to him about a possible return to the club. 

“We know that Vincent Kompany, who was on their list, won’t be the new Spurs manager. He’s committed his future to Burnley. It won’t be Julian Nagelsmann – who will it be?

“Thomas Frank increasingly keeps coming up in conversation as somebody who Tottenham have an admiration for. I would even go as far as saying that Brentford are anticipating an approach from Tottenham for Thomas Frank. 

“Would he be the man to keep the Spurs fans satisfied? They need to make a decision because they’re just in a state of flux at the moment. Ryan Mason is doing his best to try and get results between now and the end of the season.”

Frank is set to guide Brentford to a third-consecutive season in the Premier League. The Bees comfortably survived in the top-flight last season and could record their first top-half finish, currently sitting ninth in the table. 

Spurs have been without a manager since Antonio Conte was sacked in late March. In a chaotic episode of events, Cristian Stellini, Conte’s assistant, was appointed as acting head coach but was dismissed after a dismal run of form. 

Fans’ favourite Ryan Mason has been in charge for the last four games but has overseen just one win. The former midfielder is not expected to win the job on a full-time basis.
