Harlee Dean is excited by what Brentford have been doing off the pitch during the summer.
The Bees replaced manager Mark Warburton with head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen and have brought in a host of players from across Europe in a bid to win promotion to the Premier League.
And Dean believes the changes are going to revolutionise English football and is more than willing to go along with what Matthew Benham has planned for the club.
He said: “It's exciting. It's different to what has been before but it's exciting and I think it's going to be revolutionary.
“Every area has got something new and it's got something different. We're thinking outside the box and I hope it works. We've got to take it on board and go with it.”
Dean is not certain of his place in the starting line-up with Yoann Barbet and Andreas Bjelland brought in to provide competition in defence and his first ambition is to force his way into Dijkhuizen's plans.
He added: “I'm getting my head down in training and working hard and showing the staff what I'm about. I'm going to be the best I can be.”
The head coach has given his defender extra responsibility during the pre-season campaign, handing him the captain's armband, although the Dutchman is yet to decide on who will lead Brentford going into the season.
Dean said: “It's nice that the head coach is giving me the opportunity to be it and I'll take it on board if selected as captain this season. It's a role that I'll relish.
“I feel I've always been a leader anyway. It's either in you or not. You've got to lead by example on and off the pitch.”
