Pete Winkelman: Took over the MK Dons in 2003 after they moved to Milton Keynes

The MK chairman is unpopular among AFC fans after being accused of cashing in when buying the club after it was moved to Milton Keynes in 2003.

AFC chairman Erik Samuelson will not acknowledge Winkelman at Sunday's FA Cup second-round match at Stadium MK and will snub the chance to sit in the directors' box.

But Winkelman does not think he has done anything wrong, as he said in The Sun: "Look, I do understand that on this special occasion, this first meeting, that they would rather sit with their own supporters.

"If there is a replay, I will do exactly the same.

"I obviously apologise for the difficulties I caused at the beginning. But I've got nothing to be ashamed of.

"What I wanted to do back then was to provide a solution to a problem.

"And I think the solution we have come up with in Milton Keynes is pretty phenomenal."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
