Brentford boss Thomas Frank believes Romeo Beckham is a 'very good player' and hopes he will 'make himself very interesting for us'

Speaking back in January when Beckham initially joined Brentford on loan, Bees boss Thomas Frank said he wanted people to treat him as a player in his own right - rather than focusing on his famous name - after he made his debut for the club.

"Romeo is a very good player, of course he has a name that is pretty worldwide, and big," Frank said.

"For Romeo, he is himself, but he of course has a big name. You can't compare [father and son]."

David Beckham was forced to jump a fence to escape the crowds who had recognised him as he went to watch his son, Romeo make his debut for Brentford B

Frank drew the comparison between Denmark international Michael Laudrup and his son Andreas, who he coached, saying: "Maybe Laudrup is also a decent player [similar to David Beckham], I coached his son and it is important to take him as a player - not as a Laudrup but as himself."

The Brentford boss added: "He is here for a reason, because we think he is a good player, and we are pleased he could make the loan deal.

"[We are] pleased to see him doing well, pleased to see the performance he had in the last game and when you have players, either permanent or on loan, it is for a reason.

"It is either for getting the team to perform, or to extend the loan deal and make it a permanent deal, so we just hope that he keeps progressing and makes it very interesting for us."
