Samuelson criticises MK cup motives

Next Story

AFC Wimbledon chief executive Erik Samuelson believes MK Dons are using Sunday's FA Cup tie between the two clubs as a publicity stunt to try to justify the "hijacking" of Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes.

In 2003 Wimbledon FC, FA Cup winners in 1988, were uprooted from south west London and moved over 50 miles north of the capital to the Buckinghamshire town. The club was renamed MK Dons the following year.

Ahead of the game at stadium:mk, Samuelson told the club's official website: "For our opponents, it is a wonderful opportunity to present themselves to the world as the wronged ones, a club which offers the hand of reconciliation and is wounded when rejected."
