Fränkel is a defender who was born in Paramaribo and made his debut in professional football, being part of the Telstar squad in the 1994-95 season. He also played for De Graafschap before joining Vitesse.
In 2003, he scored an own goal against FC Twente when the match was just 19 seconds old. This was an all-time record in the Eredivisie, but it was broken three years later by Arnold Kruiswijk of FC Groningen, who, in a match against Heracles Almelo, managed to pass his own goalkeeper after 9 seconds.
After the relegation of De Graafschap in 2012, Fränkel decided he did not want to play in the Eerste Divisie any more and retired from professional football. Currently he plays for the amateurs of vv DUNO from Doorwerth.
