BEES’ STATE­MENT PUZ­ZLE

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

The Club is a ware of some press spec­u­la­tion about the fu­ture of our Manager, Mark War­bur­ton.

Given Mark’s in­creas­ing pro­file within the g ame, w e recog­nise that he will de­servedly have turned the heads of other clubs.

As with ev­ery other sen­si­bly run club, we plan for var­i­ous pos­si­ble even­tu­al­i­ties.

We are a pro­gres­sive club who do talk to other peo­ple within the game to lear n about other ways of do­ing things, and to con­sider novel strate­gic ap­proaches to the game.

Those con­ver­sa­tions con­tinue in­ter­nally, and are part of a healthy dia­logue.

Foot­ball is some­times called a vil­lage, and in any vil­lage, gos­sip and ru­mours can spread like wild­fire, whether or not such ru­mours are true.

It would not be in the Club’ s in­ter­ests to dis­close any of those dis­cus­sions, but Brent­ford FC do want to conf irm that Mark War­bur­ton re­mains our manager.

The team’s per­for­mance has been mag­nif icent this sea­son and that is pri­mar­ily down to Mark’s lead­er­ship.

Mark will con­tinue to lead the club in its push for Pre­mier League foot­ball.

At this crit­i­cal stage of the sea­son, we don’ t pro­pose to make any fur­ther state­ments in re­la­tion to th­ese ru­mours.
