The defensive duo has become the highlights of Brighton and Hove Albion in the English Premier League and they talked about their friendship.

Brighton and Hove Albion defensive duo Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have become the highlights of the club in the English Premier League.

And they talked to the team’s official website about their special relationship.

“We probably spend more time with one another than anyone else, we bond all the time and always sit around together after training. It’s good and when it comes to a match it helps a lot more,” Shane says.

“We’re the same sort of age and have the same sort of backgrounds and upbringings, it probably also helped that we both played in the Premier League for the first time last season.”

“We’re close away from the field and it obviously helps when you’re playing matches, we play alongside each other and our position on the field means we’ll always need to talk and communicate, I imagine if you didn’t have that sort of relationship with one another then it would make things quite difficult,” Dunk added.

“I’d consider him my friend if I have to! But we don’t share a room on away trips, we all have our separate rooms, I don’t think he could handle my snoring and I probably couldn’t handle his either!”
