MICHAEL Duff admits he probably shouldn’t have left Barnsley for Swansea City last summer.

The 46-year-old led the Reds to play-off final defeat a year ago then moved to the Welsh club who sacked him later in the year.

He has now been appointed by Barnsley’s near neighbours Huddersfield Town.

Duff said: “Ultimately, it didn’t work for Swansea and me.

“I don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist to work that out.

“It wasn’t a great fit.

“In hindsight, should I have left Barnsley? Probably not.

“But we are all a lot wiser with hindsight and that’s the excitement of this opportunity.

“I feel refreshed and you learn more from failure.

“It’s the first time I jumped early (at Barnsley) and it was a mistake.”
