‘The way we smashed’ – Brentford boss slams poor Man Utd after ‘destroying them in the first-half’

'The way we smashed' - Brentford boss slams poor Man Utd after ‘destroying them in the first-half’

Thomas Frank claims Manchester United were ‘unbelievably lucky’ to win 3-1 as his Brentford side ‘smashed’ and ‘destroyed’ them.

Bees’ boss Frank insisted the seventh-placed Red Devils ‘didn’t have a sniff’ in a goalless first half.

Speaking on BT Sport, as quoted by Sun: “Unbelievably proud of my team. We are the smallest club in the Premier League, Manchester United the biggest.

“We destroyed them in the first half, they didn’t have a sniff, three huge chances and there could only have been one winner of this game.

“They are unbelievably lucky. I know all the stuff about taking chances. They changed the system against little Brentford.

“One of those nights, fair play to David de Gea, if we get those chances again one will go in the back of the net.

“Our intensity killed them, we showed that in the first half, we played the Brentford way.”

Frank reckons the killer moment was the way Greenwood was able to double United’s lead.

He said: “Unbelievably tough to take.

“A bit of quality and they went 1-0 up and after that is was bit too difficult.

“Of the three goals, the second is most disappointing and difficult to come back from.

“The way we smashed them in the first half was fantastic.”

And in another dig at United’s flat first period, Frank added: “They had to step up, the way we destroyed them, they were not particularly happy with that, they were huge favourites before the game.

“They got a goal and changed the momentum of the game.

“It tells everything about the players, mentality and attitude that we out ran Man United and any other day we would win.”
