Thomas Frank opens up on Graham Potter’s exit from Brighton

THOMAS Frank insists it would take “something crazy special” to lure him away from Brentford amid links to the vacant Brighton job.

The Dane arrived in English football as a relatively unknown quantity but his reputation has skyrocketed after ending the Bees’ 74-year exile in 2021 before making a name for himself in the Premier League.

Divisional rivals Brighton are looking for a new head coach to replace sacked Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea following Graham Potter’s departure.

Brentford boss Frank is among a host of potential candidates linked to the Seagulls but hinted during the discussion of Potter’s move to Stamford Bridge that he would not be interested in that particular post.

“From an outside perspective – because I don’t know what Graham was thinking and I might think differently – it’s a trade off of doing a top job like he did at Brighton and then your ambitions,” said the 48-year-old Frank.

“He had a chance to go to one of the biggest clubs and see if he could work his magic there too, which I’m sure he will do.

“In this situation, a lot depends on which club you come up against. If it’s a club of this scale and size, maybe there’s a chance to make something.

“I wouldn’t even say it’s necessarily more special than what he did in Brighton because what he created there was very special.

“But maybe more to compete with the best in the world year after year and not try to get a mid-table position.

“Trying to win the Premier League and the Champions League, that’s probably the challenge.

“I’m in a position here where I’m very happy at Brentford. That’s what I focus on every day.

“So for me it would have to be something crazy special. Football is football but one thing is for sure I am very happy.” Thomas Frank opens up on Graham Potter’s exit from Brighton
