Brentford boss Thomas Frank has apologized for being sent off after his side lost to Wolves.

After Joao Moutinho opened the scoring, Ivan Toney’s equalizer was then canceled out by late winner Ruben Neves to hand Brentford a fourth Premier League defeat in a row – in a game that was interrupted for around 15 minutes in the first half because of a flying drone. above the stadium.

The incident came after Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry both had to be substituted after clashing when heading the ball.

Jensen did not suffer a concussion, while Henry is due for evaluation in the coming days, Frank said.

After the final whistle, a confrontation between the two groups of players ensued and Frank said after the match that he had since spoken to referee Peter Bankes about his sending off.

“I got a yellow card after a confrontation with a Wolves player and then I turned to Peter and said ‘You can give me the second one too’,” Frank said.

“I went to see Peter and talked to him very calmly because I just wanted to know why I got the second one because the first one was fair enough and he said it was because I turned around and I was apparently too aggressive.

“He said he’ll look back to see if he looks like this on TV and if so he’ll be red after two yellows and if not it’s just one yellow so let’s see .

“I told the players that I want them to control their emotions and not get stupid cards. I said I’m sorry for this time because it’s not good enough.

“It’s disappointing not being able to control my emotions there.”
