“I just need to confirm a day cause obviously they’ve got Man U Monday night football they paly Man u so I’ll probably be looking at Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday’s week you know I will go down to West London to go and visit at Brentford and obviously have a lunch with a head coach Thomas Frank.”, McCarthy stated on SABC Sport.
