Brentford boss Thomas Frank hit with an FA charge

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has been hit with an FA charge after he was sent off after his side’s defeat to Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Bees suffered a 2:1 home loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Brentford Community Stadium and this was their sixth defeat on their last seven Premier League games.

The manager has now been charged by the Football Association for alleged use of unacceptable behavior towards the referee on the day Peter Bankes.

‘It is alleged that the manager’s language and/or behavior towards the match referee after the final whistle was improper, and he has until Thursday [27/01/22] to provide a response.’

Speaking after the game which was delayed for 20 minutes due to a drone flying overhead, Frank admitted that he was overwhelmed by his emotions after he received his marching orders for confronting Bankes after the final whistle went off.

‘I was frustrated we didn’t get a point but I was relatively calm and there was a situation which triggered it,’ explained Frank.

‘I got a yellow card after a confrontation with a Wolves player, then I turned round to Peter and said “you can give me a second one as well”. He said it was because I was turning around and too aggressive.’


Meanwhile, it can be recalled that Frank and his assistant signed new deals to remain at Brentford until 2025 last week.
