Thomas Frank has been quizzed on the prospect of replacing Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, and his response was a pretty open one.

The Brentford boss has been named among some of the favourites to take over at Liverpool this summer, having enjoyed a successful spell at the Gtech Community Stadium so far.

He was asked for his thoughts on the upcoming vacancy, and while he admitted he has “ambitions” for his career, he kept his cards fairly close to his chest.

“Yeah, I keep up with things and have seen that Xavi and Klopp are leaving,” the Brentford manager told Danish outlet Tipsbladet.

“Regarding myself, I’m insanely happy to be here. I’ve said that before. I have the opportunity to pursue many of my ambitions.

“Like everyone else, I also have ambitions, but it’s hard to say exactly what they are.

“I understand that we need some good performances and to win some football matches, and that’s my main focus right now.”
