Brentford boss Thomas Frank has hailed Tottenham Hotspur counterpart Antonio Conte as 'one of the best managers in the world'.

Frank will come to head-to-head with Conte for the first time when Brentford travel across London to face Spurs on Thursday.

"I think Conte is one of the best managers in the world, one thing is his results of the different teams he's been in charge of," Frank said in his pre-match press conference.

"I would say there are two main things, one thing they are always very structured, very defensive and what they need to do.

"Then they just show a top mentality - I like to see that the team is reflective of the personality of the manager and he has a very strong mentality. Hopefully, they're not there yet!"

On Spurs' current form, Frank added: "It's early days in the season.

"We are speaking about a club that have developed, and struggled in the last two years a tiny bit in terms of matching their ambitions which seems to be top four.

"They have the stadium, the infrastructure, the money and the players - they could most likely be a top four side."
