Marinus Dijkhuizen is hoping Brentford will improve on last season's fifth placed finish with 78 points.
The Bees appointed the Dutchman as head coach, replacing Mark Warburton as the man at the helm at Griffin Park.
Dijkhuizen knows that he is inheriting a strong team but still sees room for improvement in order to meet his ambitions of managing in the Premier League.
He said: “The first thing is to make things better, they want to be an innovative club. It’s important we bring in young players, we have to get them better, develop them and develop as a team.
“I want to develop as a coach. We will see if it is good enough for what position in the league. It’s difficult to say at this moment.”
“We play good football. I prefer attacking football. I think and I hope we are one of best sides. I am glad there is a good base for playing good football.
“That’s important for the spectators, to see good football, but otherwise, you have to be realistic. You have to get results which is the most important thing. The combination is very good.”
Director of football Rasmus Ankersen is keen to see Brentford improve but is not concerned about the thoughts of failure.
He said: “It would be stupid not to try do better than last season and doing better is being in the race for promotion again.
“We definitely think that is important. Football is a random game, there are no guarantees, but we aim high.
“If we fail this year, we aim high next year. It’s a club with big ambitious, and we want to do better than last year.”
