Player’s preferred destination
Earlier this season, Toney spoke at length about his footballing career and the gambling regulations that have seen him banned until the end of January. During an interview with the Diary Of A CEO podcast, he explained that he wants to join ‘the right club’ when he leaves Brentford.
Asked for who that could be given that he is a boyhood Liverpool fan, Toney replied: “I have been a Liverpool fan my whole life, but I have liked Arsenal… I like watching Arsenal and how they play and kind of how passionate the fans are. But, yeah, Liverpool fan, Liverpool boy at heart.”
Thomas Frank on Toney
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has sung the praises of Toney on a weekly basis for his courageous performances for his side, and the Danish manager is willing to facilitate his exit if the correct offer arrives. Speaking on Sky Sports, Frank claimed that the Bees’ No 9 is one of the best in the business, before saying: “If they build well with us on this journey, and now prove they are good enough to go to the top clubs, but for the right price. Yes, it does apply to him too (Toney), I understand why there are a lot of rumours out there, for me, as a striker and a number nine, I don’t see many others better than him in the world.”
