On recruitment, he said: “This is, for me, the most vital point - that we bring in the best possible players and speak about that, who could that be.

“It’s not only about identifying those players, it’s also then about meeting them, convincing them to join this club even though we will not be playing in the Champions League.

“This is what I see as the most important bit. Then also, with regards to top talented players for the Academy, identify those kind of players.”

Meanwhile, Brentford boss Thomas Frank also spoke to the press ahead of the match.

His full quotes are available on the club’s official YouTube channel.

The Dane spoke about the club’s recent record against the so called “big” teams in the Premier League, saying: “We want to go into every game with confidence and belief that you can do something. We are not going there with fear. If we could win there, it would be unbelievable.

“It makes it very clear that we can compete in this league. I’m proud, the staff are proud, the players are proud, and, I hope, the fans are proud. It’s not that often that a newly-promoted team gets results against the normal top six. We are very pleased with that, but I want to get points against every club. I understand the story is bigger if we are drawing 3-3 against Liverpool or beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It is that consistency that makes me the proudest overall.”
