Thomas Frank

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has backed young left-back Rico Henry to be called up by the England national team soon.

The 24-year-old who was named in the PFA Championship team of the year last season has been a consistent figure for Brentford since they were promoted to the Premier League and according to Frank, the player will come good once he grows some aspects of his game.

“I think Rico is a very interesting left-back and for England, I would understand if they look at him and were very aware of him.

“He needs to keep the consistency of those (good) performances. If he does that then I think at one stage he will get his England chance because, with left-backs, it is difficult to get top ones in that position.

“He needs to develop but he is lightning quick, his one-on-one defensive side of the game is crazily good and he has added goals to his CV as well. He is a very interesting prospect,” he said.

Brentford is currently placed 12th on the log and their coach has been one of the most vocal people about the postponement of the league due to the rising cases of Covid.
