Sky Bet League One side Milton Keynes Dons have today confirmed on their official website that the club has parted company with manager Karl Robinson.
The 36-year-old departs Stadium:MK after six and a half years at the helm, after being appointed boss back in May 2010.
Robinson is the club’s longest serving manager since being formed in 2004. He has also brought through a number of high-profile names from MK Dons’ academy. Most notably the likes of Benik Afobe, Brendan Galloway, Patrick Bamford and Dele Alli – all who currently play in the Premier League.
During his tenure as manager at the Buckinghamshire team, Karl Robinson will be mostly remembered for taking them to their highest ever position in English football when the Dons gained promotion to the Championship in 2015, before ultimately getting relegated at the end of last season.
The club state chairman Pete Winkleman and Robinson came to an agreement that it was best to terminate the latter’s contract. Head of coaching Richie Baker is set to take temporary charge as manager of MK Dons.
