Brentford assistant coach Brian Rimmer is set to leave the west London club to become head coach of Anderlecht.
The 44-year-old has been at Brentford since October 2018, when the club were in the Championship, joining as the first new member of the squad under Thomas Frank.
Rimmer, who generally looks after Brentford’s defensive play, is a longtime assistant to the Danish head coach.
Brentford is in the process of looking for a replacement.
Rimmer will sign a one-and-a-half-year contract with the Belgian club. Historically, Anderlecht has been the most successful team in the country, and Anderlecht are only 11th in the league this season.
Former boss Vincent Kompany left to take over as Burnley’s manager this summer, and was replaced by Phyllis Matsuo, who was sacked in October after just 21 matches.
Brentford are still in talks with Thomas Frank over a possible new deal, as reported by the athlete Last month.
The club ranks tenth in the Premier League table.
