The list was compiled last month, shortly before Thomas became the first man in 74 years to lead us to the top tier of English football following our Play-Off Final success over Swansea City.

Last season also saw Thomas take us to our first ever major Cup Semi-Final in the shape of our run to the Last Four of the Carabao Cup and become the only manager in our history to earn more than 80 points in consecutive seasons.

All those achievements earned Thomas his spot on the list alongside the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Hansi Flick, and Thomas Tuchel.

Describing Thomas' inclusion, FourFourTwo wrote: "Apparently, Thomas Frank doesn’t join in training sessions - his lack of a professional playing career leaves him feeling somewhat out of his depth. As a manager though, he’s stellar: a true people person whose man-management has got unseen levels out of many of his players, as Brentford continue their rise through the football pyramid"
