Last December, Mo Eisa witnessed first-hand what it can be like to play against MK Dons when they are at their best – and it left the striker wandering ‘what if’.
Despite his side, Peterborough United, salvaging a draw from their visit to Stadium MK, Eisa & Co spent the majority of the match chasing shadows against a dominant Dons outfit, leaving the 27-year-old thinking about the prospect of playing and scoring goals in such a team.
Now, after completing a move to MK Dons for an undisclosed fee, Eisa has the chance to do just that – and the Sudanese-born frontman can’t wait to get started.
“I’m so happy,” he told iFollow MK Dons in his first exclusive interview since arriving at Stadium MK. “From the moment I arrived, I knew it was definitely the right decision.
“When I played MK Dons last season, we couldn’t get out of our own half and it just made me think – if I was to play for a team like that, I’d score so many goals.
“There were a few interested clubs this summer but I was only interested in MK Dons because I know the style of play will suit me - it was an easy decision for me.”
He added: “The main thing is about winning games. We want to have a good start to the season because then we can achieve anything.
“My job to help the team win games is scoring goals – that’s the best way I can contribute. I’ll be focusing on doing that but making sure that we win those games too. Hopefully I can fill my boots and help the team.”
Eisa could make his Stadium MK bow this week when MK Dons face Tottenham Hotspur in front of over 12,500 supporters. The forward is eagerly anticipating the occasion.
“I’m very excited,” he said. “Every time I played against MK Dons, I wanted to play here because the stadium is so nice.
“Having the fans back in will help massively too. Football didn’t feel the same last year - I like having that pressure of the fans being in. I can’t wait!”
