Don Hutchison has backed Tottenham Hotspur and Daniel Levy to appoint a coach like Brentford’s Thomas Frank as their next manager.
Tottenham fans got to see Thomas Frank up close and personal on Saturday, as Brentford came from 1-0 down to secure a 3-1 win in north London.
At the half-time break, Frank changed tact by going to a 3-5-2, which caused Tottenham all sorts of issues and Hutchison added that his teams are always ‘great to watch’, as he told Premier League Productions (20/05/23).
Despite having one of the lowest budgets in the league, the Bees have an outside chance of securing European football at the end of the season, but they need other results to go their way.
That was helped by the West London club securing all three points at Tottenham on Saturday, without their star striker Ivan Toney.
All of this is only going to further raise the stock of their Danish coach, who is going from strength and strength.
“When you look at the job Thomas Frank has done, that’s the manager profile that Tottenham should be looking at,” said Hutchison.
“Invest in someone like Thomas Frank. He is brilliant at getting the fans, the community and everyone on the same sheet. They are a great team to watch. You have to work hard, if you are going to be in this Brentford side.”
THOMAS FRANK AS TOTTENHAM’S NEXT MANAGER?
From a style of play point of view, he ticks the boxes. Plus, if you look at the last manager that did well at Spurs, he joined from an overachieving Southampton.
So, from that perspective, perhaps it’s a road Levy should go down.
Tottenham fans dream of a Julian Nagelsmann, but reports about the German joining change from one week to the next, so perhaps Frank would be the most logical bet.
