After Mauricio Pochettino’s unexpected departure, Chelsea supporters will be expecting to see the name Thomas Frank surface in the manager hunt in the upcoming weeks and months. However, during the course of the next month, they will also see him on television.

The BBC’s coverage of the European Championships, which get underway on Friday, June 14, will feature the Dane. In 2021, England will seek to end their long wait for a significant international trophy and exact revenge on Italy for their last-ever loss at Wembley.

Germany is hosting the competition in an attempt to win its first European championship since Euro ’96 and fourth overall. Among the favorites for the tournament are the Three Lions and France, the beaten World Cup finalists.

Along with the hosts Germany, the remaining three teams in Group A are Switzerland, Hungary, and Scotland. As Spain, Croatia, and Albania struggle to advance out of Group B, reigning champion Italy finds themselves in a sort of “Group of Death.”

Frank’s Denmark will take on Gareth Southgate’s second team on matchday two, hoping to exact revenge for their defeat to England in the Euro 2020 semi-finals following a contentious penalty call. Frank will probably be included in the coverage of Denmark so that fans can learn about the team from the players’ perspective.

Among the male attendees in the studio for the competition are Rio Ferdinand, Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard, Cesc Fabregas, and Wayne Rooney. Frank’s credentials to manage in West London or even outside of the Premier League will surely be questioned amid the ongoing discussion and hunt for a new manager at Stamford Bridge, given his connections to Manchester United and Liverpool.

Frank has expressed interest in leaving Brentford, and there have been rumors that he has made a kind of “come-and-get-me” appeal. He disclosed this to the Daily Mail. “I should give it some thought if a major club ever knocks on my door.

However, I’m not hunting for it. I could live here for an extended amount of time, but I could live in Brentford for, well, forever is probably a ridiculously long time.” It is unclear if he will choose the Blues over the Bees, but bookmakers have him at about 10/1 to succeed Pochettino.
