HUDDERSFIELD wants boss Neil Warnock back – but the veteran will consult his family first.
Future owner Kevin Nagle admires the way 74-year-old Warnock has helped the Terriers stay in the Championship.
But the well-travelled manager had health issues that prompted him to cancel appointments on his personal tour.
Should Warnock miss out, Huddersfield will opt for Barnsley’s Michael Duff.
The Tykes meet Sheffield in the League One play-off final tomorrow on Wednesday.
Warnock received an honor guard from his own players after keeping Huddersfield in the game.
Speaking to SunSport’s Justin Allen last month, Warnock revealed what makes players like Pep Guardiola successful.
He said: “It used to be fashionable to have older managers and then the trend went to younger coaches.”
“They talk about tactics, formations and whatever – but 95 percent of this job is and will always be leading people.
“Pep Guardiola knows what he’s doing but the most important thing he’s doing is getting the players to believe what he’s saying. That’s why he’s successful.”

Commenting on the trend for veteran bosses to call the shots mid-season, he added, “Sometimes you just need an older boss. I look at some of the decisions clubs make and who they have appointed manager.”
“I’m like, ‘That’s silly’.” Anyone who knows anything about football knows it’s not going to be a success. That confuses me.
“That’s why there is a job for me every February, March and April if I stay healthy.”
