After just eight league games, Brentford have wasted little time in sacking their Dutch coach Marinus Dijkhuizen, and have appointed Lee Carsley as manager for the rest of the season.

Brentford currently lie 19th in the Championship, having won two of their first eight games. Dijkhuizen was only appointed in the summer, after Mark Warburton, the manager who secured their promotion from League 1, resigned following a falling out with the chairman.

The club, in their words, 'believes Lee deserves the opportunity to step up.'

Lee Carsley has been promoted to Head Coach until the end of the season when the position will be reviewed.

Lee has vast experience of the English game and has hugely impressed with his work with the Club’s Development Squad. He will be assisted by Paul Williams.

The Club believes Lee deserves the opportunity to step up and help shape Brentford FC’s future on the pitch. Chairman Cliff Crown will update supporters via the Brentford FC website this afternoon.
