Brentford boss Thomas Frank: We go to Man Utd to win

Brentford boss Thomas Frank says they go to Manchester United tonight to win.

The Dane admits he can see United struggling.

Frank said, "The club is one of the biggest in world football, what they created over the years. The team are obviously struggling in terms of the ambitions, I don't think that's any secret - I can say that without any disrespect. They've had a tough season as always, it's not good when you need to sack a manager or head coach because something is not right.

"I think we played a fantastic first half and should have easily been two goals. They had unfortunately their best performing player this season [David De Gea] once again, perform fantastically against us. We couldn't quite keep it up second half, but I think the overall performance; you'd be satisfied if you were Brentford playing against one of the biggest clubs in the world."

Frank was at Fulham last week to see them face Nottingham Forest.

He added: "It's not that often that I have an evening off and apparently the same time as Man City-Real Madrid so I'm a little bit in doubt if I made the right choice to go to that game in all due respect of Fulham and Nottingham Forest! It's obvious that it's two teams that we are going to potentially face next season."
