Man Utd goalkeeper Lee Grant outlines what he expects from Brentford

There is a strong recent history of promoted clubs doing well in their first season back in the top-flight, with Wolves, Sheffield United and Leeds United all securing top-half places since 2018/19.

Leeds, our fierce rivals from across the Pennines, made headlines with their attacking philosophy last term and Grant believes Brentford have everything in place to emulate Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

“You’re looking at quite a unique team, a unique club,” Lee continued. “A smaller club but a London club, so attractive to some as well. But the way they run the club, the framework, the ideas, the forward-thinking mentality, their use of technology and statistics.

“All of that stuff, for me, is really refreshing, and all of the club – the players, the staff – have bought into it massively and when you have a club that’s very united and solid and driven in terms of where they’re trying to go, as you’ve seen with Leeds it can propel you endlessly really. Because their goal and vision is so clear.

“As a squad and playing staff and coaching staff, I’m sure Brentford will be able to follow Leeds and have a really strong year next year.”
