Brentford replace Marinus Dijkhuizen with Lee Carsley

28 September 2015

Brentford have parted ways with head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen, replacing him with Lee Carsley.

The Bees reached the Sky Bet Championship Play-Offs last term, but they currently sit 19th and just one point above the relegation zone after eight games of the 2015/16 campaign.

Their fourth loss of the League campaign came against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and, as a result, Dijkhuizen and assistant Roy Hendriksen have now departed Griffin Park, with Carsley taking over until the end of the season.

A statement from the club's official website read: "Brentford Football Club can confirm that the club, head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen and his assistant, Roy Hendriksen, have parted company.

"The club would like to put on record its thanks to Marinus and Roy for all their efforts during their time at Griffin Park.

"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."
