Mark Duffy opens up

Former Blade Mark Duffy has spoken for the first time about his departure from Sheffield United last summer.

He told The Athletic: “I laugh to myself when I see all the things about money. I didn’t even get that far! I don’t know if I caught the gaffer on a bad day. Maybe he had a lot on his plate, trying to sign players and stuff like that.

“But, obviously, I could have gone about it a different way. At the time, though, I thought, ‘I have a great relationship with the gaffer and no one is picking up the phone to speak to my agent so I will go and have a chat myself’. Just a friendly chat. I never in a million years envisaged what would happen next.”
