Brøndby IF football club is in a state of disarray following the news today that Thomas Frank has stepped down as head coach with immediate effect.

Frank’s resignation comes a day after the board director Jan Bech Andersen anonymously criticised a number of Brøndby actors including Frank on a fan forum.

“As of today, head coach Thomas Frank has resigned from his position,” Brøndby wrote. “We are working to find a temporary head coach for Brøndby IF’s Superliga team.”

And that man will be former club great Auri Skarbalius, according to new reports.
