After making 17 appearances during his loan spell with MK Dons, Warren O’Hora made the permanent switch to Stadium MK, and it’s safe to say the Defender is happy with his decision.
Despite his young age, O’Hora has played with a maturity beyond his years under Russell Martin and has become a favourite among fans and staff alike.
Martin moved quickly in the January transfer window to secure the services of the young defender – a move both parties are more than happy with.
“I'm delighted – I've loved every minute since I came in the door,” the Defender told iFollow MK Dons. “It was always on the cards to come here permanently, and now it's got done and done early. I'm grateful to the club for having me and I'm looking forward to the future.”
“I didn't expect it to be like this – everyone in and around the club has been so nice to me since I got here - the football has been amazing. It was a no-brainer when the opportunity came about to sign here. I was on the phone straight away to say 'get it done!'
“I'm still adapting to the league and the demands of it. I got a good run of games and I've adapted well to the team, the way we play, and I went on from there. The main thing is that I was enjoying football and it made it so much easier for me.”
The Irishman’s loan to Stadium MK was his first taste of professional football in the EFL., having spent the formative years of his career with Bohemians in Ireland, and the latter stages with Brighton and Hove Albion. The Defender feels he’s now adjusted to the demands of First Team football and can’t wait to continue his career with the Dons.
“It's my first season which is a bit crazy considering where I've come from, and I'm really happy about it’s come with MK Dons. The demands of men's football, trying to get three points every weekend – it’s more enjoyable really. Every game is something to fight for, a bit of pressure which every player loves.
“Coming in as a loan player, you don't want to be the biggest voice, or at least that's what I felt. You don't want to be the cocky young lad who thinks he knows everything because I don't! Leadership I think is one of my qualities and I think I can get better at that. Hopefully, it comes out a bit more because I'm here permanently, and I can voice my opinions a bit more and be a bit louder on the pitch.”
