Dean Smith believes he has brought stability to Brentford after agreeing a one year contract extension.
The Bees head coach, along with assistant Richard O'Kelly, joined the club in November 2015 and his time at the club has been one of ups and downs.
He said: “I walked into the job in late November and the first month was getting through the games. We had the transfer window with Toums (Toumani Diagouraga) and Tarks (James Tarkowski) leaving.
“There was always going to be a lot of change. Mark left the season before and Marinus came in with Cars stepping in. The club needed some stability and I think I've brought that.”
He added: “We do regular appraisals at the football club and I was doing mine with the directors of football and they said they wanted to offer a new contract.
“I really enjoy the job here. It's an interesting place to work and I like the people here. There's a strategy in place which you don't get at other clubs."
