The Daily Record have claimed that Brentford boss Thomas Frank has now emerged as the frontrunner for the Tottenham job.

Frank has been a major hit since taking over at the Brentford Community Stadium back in 2018, with the Dane guiding the Bees to promotion to the Premier League and helping to establish them in the top flight.

In fact, the West London club have a realistic chance of qualifying for Europe as they currently sit eighth in the table with 42 points, which is the same as Liverpool and just seven less than Spurs (with a game in hand).

That is perhaps why some outlets have reported over the last couple of weeks that Frank is one of the names on Tottenham’s shortlist to replace Antonio Conte at the end of the season (The Athletic).

The Guardian explained last week that the fact the 49-year-old has achieved what he has at Brentford on such a low budget is one of the reasons why many at Spurs are impressed with his work.

If the Daily Record’s latest update is to be believed, Frank has now emerged as Daniel Levy’s top choice to take over from Antonio Conte.

The report states that Ryan Mason is likely to be put in charge on a temporary basis for now, with the Brentford boss the favourite to take charge at the end of the season.

Frank has certainly done an admirable job at Brentford but I do not think his style of play would translate easily to a bigger club where there is more pressure to pick up wins regularly.

If Spurs are looking for someone with Premier League experience, I believe that Roberto De Zerbi would be the better fit.
