Frank confirms Onyeka ready to face Liverpool


Brentford manager, Thomas Frank is delighted to have Frank Onyeka available for the Bees Premier League clash against Liverpool.

Onyeka retuned to West London this week following his participation at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 26-year-old is now in contention to feature against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Brentford have also been boosted with the return of Democratic Republic of Congo forward, Yoane Wissa.

Onyeka was a key figure for Nigeria at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

The defensive midfielder started all of Nigeria’s seven games in the competition- accumulating a total of 608 minutes.

Onyeka also made more tackles (14) and interceptions (11) than any player at the tournament

“They’ve been important and good for us, so it’s good to have them in training,” Frank was quoted by club’s official website.

“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.”
