In his pre match press conference, Farke talked about injuries, the pressure he and his team are finding themselves under and Brentford's season
- Team news
- Farke still backs himself after a bad start to the season and says that he and the Club believes their signings will prove themselves
Speaking to the Pink Un Farke said:
“It’s important to be honest. The quality in both boxes is lacking. There is not a lack of quality - Webber has done an outstanding job.
“With young players you have no guarantee they adapt quickly. The club and Stuart has backed us as much as it was possible.”
Farke spoke about how he is ignoring the noise surrounding the job he is doing at the moment:
“We are not happy with not winning one game. We are working with many young players and I am fully convinced of the potential.”
“If I had the feeling someone else was out there who could do a better job, I would let them do it.
“If our bus driver took charge of the first 10 games he wouldn’t have picked up any less points.
“I am not thinking about this topic (his future). I am addicted to helping my players adapt and improve.
"I was praised when I signed my contract. I then have a poor start and the rotten tomatoes are thrown. I try to remain balanced. I’m not doubting or questioning myself.”
- Farke on Brentford's season so far
Brentford have started well and Farke explained that he is full of respect for the opposition:
“Thomas Frank has done a fantastic job with Brentford.
“They are on 12 points and deserve all the praise. Nevertheless, we want to win the points.
“They are strong on counter-attacks and set-pieces, so we need to keep them as far away as possible."
