MK Dons have decided to part company with first-team manager Dan Micciche after 16 games in charge of the club.

Dan Micciche replaced Robbie Neilson this January but has only managed to pick up three wins in 16 games in charge of MK Dons.

The 38-year-old has left MK Dons 23rd in the table in League One, six points away from safety with three games left to play of the 2017/18 campaign.

This wasn’t Dan Micciche’s first spell at the club, he previously led the club’s youth set-up producing a host of talented players. He left to spend four years working with England’s development teams and managing the under-16 side.

But he left the Football Association by mutual consent a month before being appointed manager of MK Dons.

His first game in charge was a 1-0 defeat to Coventry at the Stadium:MK in the FA Cup. His final game in charge was a 4-0 defeat against Southend United on Saturday.

Micciche told the club website: “This is a Club that means a lot to me and my family and I put every ounce of effort into the job. Unfortunately, the fine margins have gone against us and it hasn’t worked out in the way we would have wanted.”

“I am extremely grateful to the board, staff, players and fans for their tremendous support during my time here. It has been an honour to manage this Football Club and I would love nothing more than to see it get back to where it belongs.”

Chairman Pete Winkelman, who will address the media on Monday, said: “I am grateful to Dan for his dedication to the role during this testing period in our history and I sincerely wish him the very best for the future.”

It’s understood that assistant manager Keith Millen will take charge of the first team until the end of the season.
