Brentford head coach Thomas Frank is elated by the return of Super Eagles midfielder Frank Onyeka from the Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d'Ivoire where the team finished as runners-up and confirmed that the Nigerian had started training. 

The Bees are due to face Liverpool in the early kickoff on Saturday lunchtime and the availability of Onyeka as well as that of Congo DR forward Yoane Wissa after the AFCON exertions were asked the English coach at his press conference ahead of the game at the Gtech Community stadium. 

"They’ve been important and good for us, so it’s good to have them in training," Frank enthused. 

"They’ve come back with energy having had, in many, many ways, fantastic experiences. Unfortunately, they finished second and fourth rather than first and third, but we are very proud of them and what they achieved,” the coach who had reportedly been mulled as a contender for the soon-to-be-available job of Liverpool told the media on Friday. 

Onyeka was ever present in all seven of Nigeria's matches at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Brentford are 14th on the table with 25 points after 23 games while the Reds are atop the league with 54 points.
