Last updated : 23 January 2018 By CNS Sport/AO

Milton Keynes Dons have appointed a new manager ahead of Saturday's FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Coventry City at stadiumMK.

Dan Micciche, the 38 year old, who had been MK Dons' Academy head coach has been appointed First-Team Manager and has brought in Keith Millen as Assistant Manager with Dean Lewington moving up to become a player-coach.

Speaking about his appointment to the MK Dons club website, Micciche said:  “I’m so proud to be named manager of MK Dons. This Club has done so much for me and we had such good success together during my first spell. Milton Keynes is also my home – I’m living in the area and my kids have been brought up here too.

“It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours but we’ve got a lot of work to do now. I understand the position we are in – it is not the position we want to be in – so first and foremost, our priority is to make sure we bring some confidence and belief back to this squad so we can begin climbing that league table.

“As a team, we want to entertain and we want to be an attacking, creative and expressive football team. We also want to be tactically disciplined and be clinical in both boxes. We’ve got good footballers here and it’s our job to bring that talent out over the coming weeks.”
