Brentford manager Frank admits Man Utd deserved Old Trafford victory

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has admitted his side deserved to lose to Manchester United on Monday night.

The Bees went down 3-0 at Old Trafford after goals from Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.

"We played a Manchester United team who played well today, so congratulations to them," Frank told Sky Sports.

"I think we started well for the first five minutes but then Manchester United were on top. Second half I saw much more my team I want to see play. We were back in the game but made a stupid penalty. It took a little bit out of everything and then we conceded on a set piece. Better second half.

"We were in the game [at 1-0]. We had opportunities and we were equally in the game, which was good.

"I don't think it was a 3-0 defeat in terms of chances. I think it was a fair loss. We have had a very good season in many ways. We win or learn and today we learned a lot."
