Everton want Brentford manager Thomas Frank to replace Frank Lampard
Everton want Brentford manager Thomas Frank to replace Frank Lampard after he was sacked on Monday (23 January), according to Alan Nixon.
The Toffees finally pulled the trigger on Lampard after a 2-0 defeat to West Ham on Saturday, leaving them off the bottom of the table only on goal difference.
And the club are now eyeing up replacements, with the Danish boss seen as one of the top targets according to newspaper journalist Nixon.
Everton want Brentford boss Thomas Frank to be their next manager – but face a mighty battle to get him,” he wrote on his Patreon account (23 January).
“The Goodison club are looking for Frank Lampard’s successor and think Great Dane Frank fits the bill.
“Frank has played attractive football and is also a player-friendly boss who could help the Toffees get out of their current mess.
“However sources close to Frank say he is happy at Brentford and will not jump at the chance to move.”
Frank would be an incredible managerial appointment at Goodison Park, but it’s hard to see why he’d make the move at the current time.
Brentford are flying high in the Premier League and he recently penned a new long-term deal in west London, and spoke about how happy he is to be there.
Everton are a huge club historically and much bigger than Brentford but it would take some serious sweet talking to persuade him to leave his current situation and come to the melting pot that is Everton.
But he fits the bill of what fans would want and if it was somehow a possibility it would surely be a universally accepted appointment by fans of the Toffees.
Don’t hold your breath on this one, because it seems highly unlikely to happen, but it shows where the club are looking at to get a replacement in the door as soon as possible.
