Brighton & Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy highlighted his 2016 move to the club as the best decision he’s made within the game, and is now focused on securing a third straight victory in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old has made 78 appearances for the Seagulls since joining from Blackburn Rovers, and Duffy reflected fondly on his decision to sign for Chris Hughton’s then promotion-chasing team.
He said, ”I've had highs and lows but looking back now it's probably the best choice I've made in my football career.
"At the time there were a few clubs I was in between moving to and I didn’t know where I wanted to go.
“But after speaking to the manager and looking at the place, the first two seasons have been perfect for me. Hopefully this season can get even better than the last one.
“I'm in a happy place and I’m thankful to this club for giving me the chance to perform and better myself. I'm happy and I wouldn't change it for anything.”
After tasting defeat in two of their opening three games, the Seagulls have worked their way up the league table into 12th position and Duffy is desperate to continue the team’s positive run.
"We were disappointed with the Watford game, but we always knew we’d bounce back. We knew we had the right manager and we were just waiting for the players to gel.
“The last two games have obviously helped, getting back to basics, which is what we did last season and it kept us up.
"We're confident and we've got a chance to win three Premier League games in a row, which the club has never done.
"It's a good place to be around and if we can get a couple more wins before the international break then it will be a great start."
