Exclusive – Even Premier League place won’t keep me at Brentford, claims Warburton

first_imgBrentford boss Mark Warburton insists he will still be out of a job at the end of the season – even if he leads the Bees into the Premier League.The west London club announced earlier this season that the 52-year-old, along with assistant David Weir, will be leaving their posts at the end of the campaign.Warburton’s side secured a Championship play-off spot on Saturday with victory over Wigan, and will play Middlesbrough over two legs for a place in the Wembley showdown on May 25.The former Watford coach has already stated he would not remain at Griffin Park, and has reiterated those comments, stating the pair would leave TW8 – even if the club are promoted to the Premier League.When asked whether he would stay if Brentford reached the top-flight, he said: “Unfortunately, that’s not going to be the case.“Irrespective of what happens in the next few games, I won’t be here next season. The board, and the owner, have made a decision.“It is what it is. David Weir and I have to live with that. That’s football. All we can do right now is concentrate on the play-offs and hopefully go as far as we can.”And Warburton has added Brentford are not just making up the numbers in the end of season spectacle.“We’re looking forward to the play-offs, our season is not over,” he added, speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “I’ve had a lot of comments from people who are happy to get in the play-offs, but that’s not us.“We’re not happy just to get there. That’s not our mentality. We’ve hopefully got three big games ahead of us.”last_img
