Brentford boss Thomas Frank lauds super sub Emiliano Marcondes

‘It’s just a good example that everybody needs to act if you want to achieve something’: Brentford boss Thomas Frank lauds super sub Emiliano Marcondes after crucial Fulham victory

  • Emiliano Marcondes set up Said Benrahma to put Brentford ahead late on 
  • The pair reversed roles and the Dane sealed the win at Fulham in stoppage time
  • And boss Thomas Frank believes the whole squad is needed to get promotion 

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has told his players to be more like Emiliano Marcondes if they want a shot at chasing down Leeds and West Brom for automatic promotion after the Dane came on and changed the game against Fulham.

After replacing Mathias Jensen in the 70th minute, Marcondes set up Said Benrahma to put Brentford ahead in the 88th minute before the pair reversed roles with Benrahma picking out Marcondes to seal a 2-0 win in stoppage time.

Frank told those who weren’t going to start at Craven Cottage that they would all need to be ready to play their part as Brentford – along with every other Championship side – face a hectic schedule of eight games in just over four weeks.

Frank said: ‘The same was said to Emiliano on Thursday. I told him, ‘Emi, we’re going to need you. We need you, you’re going to be a big, big part of this and you’re going to play a big role and maybe you’ll not start as many games as you want’.

‘It’s just a good example that everybody needs to act if you want to achieve something and we can only do this together.’

Marcondes added: ‘You look at the best teams in the world and it’s never about just the 11 who start and it’s the same with us and as a player you must accept you’re not playing every game but when you get on the pitch you just do everything you can to help.’
