Thomas Frank sent off for squaring up to Wolves stars after Brentford loss

Brentford manager Thomas Frank was sent off after squaring up to Wolves stars at the end of their action-packed Premier League encounter.

Frank was forced into two early substitutions after a pair of his players brutally clashed heads and were left with blood pouring down their faces.

And then an unusual incident involving a drone being flown over the Brentford Community Stadium caused play to be stopped for 20 minutes in the first-half.

The drama continued in the second 45 with the visitors coming out on top after three goals with a 2-1 victory – and it didn't stop there.

A fuming Frank stormed onto the pitch as both sets of players exchanged some heated words.

The Bees head coach made a beeline for Wolves midfielder Joao Moutinho and got right up in his face to confront him.

Fellow midfielder Ruben Neves then came to his team-mates' defence and Frank got into a shouting match with him too.

Does Frank deserve to be sent off for showing some passion? Let us know in the comments section.

As Frank headed over to the shake hands with the officials, referee Peter Bakes brandished a yellow card for his actions.

This incensed the 48-year-old further and he turned around to give Bankes a piece of his mind as well.

And at that point he was shown not just a second yellow, but a straight red card.

The punishment for a manager receiving a red card is being sent to the stands, so Frank escaped lightly with the full-time whistle already having been blown.

The incident caps off a nightmare week for the Danish boss after he went on a rant following their 3-1 midweek defeat to Manchester United.

During his post-match interview for that game he slammed the Red Devils as "unbelievably lucky" and declared "I know all the c*** about taking chances".
