The Brentford head coach on the meeting that helped turn his team’s fortunes and dealing with tragedy at Griffin Park
It’s been quite a few months for Thomas Frank since he took over as Brentford head coach. After being elevated to the top job in October after two years as Dean Smith’s assistant, he has overseen a run of eight defeats in 10 games, immediately followed by 10 unbeaten, in the middle of which came personal and professional bereavement.
Frank had been in the job only a month when, as he was waiting at a leadership conference to meet his friend Rob Rowan, Brentford’s technical director, he got a call from the club’s co-director of football Phil Giles. Rowan had died in his sleep of what turned out to be heart failure.
