Thomas Frank has dismissed any suggestion that he is close to leaving Brentford and said he reads “very, very little” about rumors linking him with Leicester.
Pressure is mounting on Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers as they sit bottom of the table without a win and still reeling from a 6-2 drubbing by Tottenham.
But Frank, while admired internally at Leicester, is “very happy” with his situation at Brentford.
‘Very easy. I’m very happy here with Brentford,” said Frank when asked about his future after Sunday’s defeat to Arsenal.
“I can’t speak for the players and I read very, very little of these rumours.
“Obviously it’s nice that someone links me because that means something we’ve done here means the staff and the players have done a good job most of the time.”
It wasn’t too long ago that Frank Brentford showed his commitment in the form of a new deal.
In January he signed a new three-year contract that does not expire until 2025.
Nonetheless, The Sun claim that the highly-rated Frank is top of Leicester’s list of potential substitutes if Rodgers gets the axe.
Frank’s shares have skyrocketed in recent years for the work he has done to establish Brentford as a Premier League side.
The 48-year-old led the Bees through the Championship play-offs to the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2020-21.
He has been in charge of the west London club since 2018 and has established a striking style of play that has won him admirers across the league.
Leicester are reportedly weighing whether to stay with Rodgers this international break or twist as it will cost more than £10m to sack him and they have to abide by financial fair play regulations.
After losing to Tottenham, Rodgers conceded: “I know how football works and I totally understand the fans’ frustration. I can’t hide from it because it’s my responsibility.
“Losing your last six games is not great reading but whatever happens to me here at Leicester I will always respect this club.”
