'If It's Football, It's Vital'

MK Dons turn down Blackpool approach

An approach from Blackpool for MK Dons manager Karl Robinson, as the official website confirms, has been turned down.

This statement was issued: 'It comes as no surprise that Karl's name is once again touted for one of the top managerial positions in the Championship as his bold and stylish brand of football has invited plenty of talk in the industry.

'Since being appointed at stadium:mk as the youngest manager in the Football League, Karl has guided our side to back-to-back play-off campaigns, broken a number of Club records and only yesterday (Tuesday) he created history by leading our Club into the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time.

'Karl is an ambitious, bright young manager and he is firmly focused on realising MK Dons' dream of Championship football.'

Talks have taken place between the boss and the chairman with it confirmed that he still sees his future at MK Dons, despite a suggestion from Robinson himself that he'd be interested in talking to the Championship outfit?

The statement continued: 'Following discussions between Karl and the Chairman, the Club have turned down an approach from Blackpool to speak to Karl regarding the managerial vacancy at Bloomfield Road.

'Karl remains committed to the players, staff and, most importantly, the fans at Milton Keynes Dons, and will be looking to take the Club from strength to strength by continuing to write new chapters in its history books.'

This could be the end of that chapter then, however I think we all know that nothing is guaranteed in football so until The Tangerines appoint a new manager it's not quite a case of "that's that!"
