Managerial news: Milton Keynes Dons and Southend United make appointments

23 January 2018

Two Sky Bet League One clubs have appointed a new manager in an attempt to revive their fortunes on the pitch.

Last Saturday, MK Dons and Robbie Neilson mutually decided to part ways, and they have moved swiftly to bring in Dan Micciche, who previously worked for the club as their Head of Academy Coaching.

Alongside Micciche will be the experienced Keith Millen, and Dean Lewington, brought back as a player-coach. For the full club statement, click here

Later on Tuesday, Southend confirmed the appointment of Chris Powell, a club legend after enjoying a six-season spell at Roots Hall in the 1990s.

Speaking in his first press conference, the 48-year-old is hoping to make the fans proud of the team again, and that starts with their weekend clash with Scunthorpe United in Essex.
