Milton Keynes Dons have confirmed they have parted company with manager Dan Micciche.

Micciche departs after 3 months in charge, and is the second manager to leave the club this season after the January dismissal of his predecessor Robbie Neilson.

The club have confirmed the decision came after talks between Micciche and the board. The Dons have also confirmed that assistant manager Keith Millen will take charge of the Dons’ final three games of the season, starting with Tuesday night’s trip to Bradford City.

Micciche’s final game in charge was a 4-0 defeat by Southend United yesterday, which leaves MK Dons 6 points from safety with 3 games of the season left to play.

In a statement released by the official MK Dons website, Micciche said, “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.”

The club’s chairman Pete Winkelman added, “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.”
