Karl Robinson: Keen to replicate Dortmund's youth development model

Robinson, 32, had guided the Dons to two successive top-six finishes but has been unable to improve this season, with the club currently sitting ninth in League One.

The manager is now preparing for a complete overhaul of the set-up at stadium:MK, following in the footsteps of Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.

He told the Milton Keynes Citizen: "I feel like I have let the fans down, my family and the chairman down too. It has left a sour taste in my mouth.

"I've not been good enough and I have to take responsibility for that.

"We're good enough to go up this season, but the buck ultimately stops with me."

"There will be changes to the backroom staff. It will be based on a continental system.

"Barcelona have heads of sports science, heads of recruitment, heads of medicine, heads of coaching and then the manager oversees that. Dortmund are a shining light when it comes to youth development."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
