Brentford boss Frank: Toney England call good for him and the club

Brentford boss Thomas Frank is delighted seeing Ivan Toney named in the latest England squad.

Frank said England coach Gareth Southgate called him and said he could give Toney the news.

Frank said: “That was a joyful moment… not often that Ivan is speechless. The journey has not been straightforward, [Toney] said he’s dreamed of being an international since being a kid… For the club it’s incredible.”

Asked if he is the best of the rest, Frank added: “I think so – I know him very well…haven’t followed Tammy Abraham that closely – link up play and play in box is very good.

“His potential is very much not at the top – the sky is the limit.”
