Thomas Frank has pledged to fully celebrate Brentford’s promotion to the Premier League
The Danish manager saw his side comfortably beat Swansea 2-0 in Saturday’s play-off final
He said, ‘Right now I just want to get so drunk tonight! And then we can think about the Premier League tomorrow.
Frankly, these footballers are incredible. How they handled the ups and downs throughout the year, like how we almost made it to the top of the league but had a minor setback.
Injuries to such protagonists as Rico (Henry), Josh (Dasilva), Christian (Norgaard) during the season, and newbies came in. Everyone played a major role in this.
Frank also praised his ‘incredible’ squad during his post-game interview
The Bees won Steve Cooper’s squad in Swansea after goals from Ivan Toney and Emiliano
“Someone told me we need two hands and ten fingers – so ten tries (Brentford had in playoff finals without winning) – to take the trophy.
“ We’ve been one of the best teams in the championship for the past three years, and then we ended up doing it the hardest way by making it to the play-off final twice. It’s unbelievable. ‘
Goals from Ivan Toney, from an early penalty, then Emiliano Marcondes after a devastating counterattack sealed victory for Frank’s side a year after losing to Fulham in the world’s most valuable game.
