Thomas Frank, boss of Brentford, calls for a ‘strict policy’ on Covid transfers


Thomas Frank, Brentford manager, calls for standard Covid 19 rules around the Premier League and Football League as both the Championship side and Spurs face Tottenham on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-finals and games have been postponed due to the coronavirus in recent days.

Brentford’s game on Saturday against Bristol City was postponed after some players showed signs in the City team, but the national holiday meant that players could not necessarily be checked. Frank worries that the series of postponements would mean that the season would have to be extended and said. “I think it’s very important that we extend the season. “I think it’s very important for the EFL, the Premier League and the FA to find some kind of rules for the four leagues and the cup competitions. We all know that we are living in a global pandemic, and that protection is crucial for everyone, but also for society, participating in the game. I know that it’s really hard for companies to get this right. But I’m talking about postponing our game against Bristol, but Wimbledon wasn’t allowed to postpone their game in League One, even though they would have had more cases. “But I’m talking about our game against Bristol being postponed, but Wimbledon in League One weren’t allowed to postpone their game, even though they might have had more cases. ” I don’t know how many players need to get a positive test or have any signs or something. I believe it’s really important that we have rules that are the same for all sports. “We already have so many games, when will they find the time to play the remaining games? “If you don’t have continuity, the season will either be extended again, or we’re going to be in the Euros. It would really help to have strict guidelines. “Tottenham’s game against Fulham last week was called off because of an outbreak in the Cottagers’ camp before Spurs players Erik Lamela, Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso hit the headlines for breaking coronavirus rules by attending a party over Christmas. “We are all human and people make mistakes occasionally,” Frank added. “Of course, we also know we have to follow the rules, but we also know that we have to follow the rules. I may put my hand in the fire and go 55 km/h when I’m not supposed to. In order to get the messages through, we do our best. To stop having the virus, we need to make all the players available and not separate ourselves. We do our utmost, but it depends, not only in soccer but also in life, on the individual person or the individual player. “Frank confirmed that his squad had tested negative ahead of the game, the first semi-final in Brentford’s history where the Dane will face three-time League Cup winner Jose Mourinho. “I’ve been studying soccer for many years and Jose is one of the best of all time, so playing against his team is a pleasure,” he said. “I admire him a lot for having such a fantastic career. But he’s just another guy standing in the stands when the whistle blows. “I’m still pretty sure he goes to the bathroom sometimes, too!”
