MK Dons have parted company with manager Dan Micciche by mutual consent, the Sky Bet League One strugglers have announced.

Former academy coach and England Under-16 manager Micciche, 38, was only appointed in January, during which time the club have slipped to six points from safety.<

Keith Millen, who was Micciche's assistant, will take charge of the Dons for the remaining three games of the season.

A club statement read: "The mutual decision, made with a heavy heart, comes after discussions between the chairman and Micciche."

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.

– Dan Micciche
