Sweeting aiming for improvement upon 13th-place finish

1 June 2021

Last week Liam Sweeting was appointed Sporting Director of MK Dons and noted he wants to play his part in ensuring MK Dons better their 2020/21 campaign.

Sweeting joined the Club in March 2018, having previously worked in posts at Blackpool and Crystal Palace, and during his time at Stadium MK has enjoyed considerable success in transforming the Club’s recruitment and performance analysis departments.

In his new role, Sweeting will be responsible for the strategic direction of the Club’s ongoing football development, managing player recruitment at all levels and working closely with the Academy to maintain the pathway to the First Team.

Speaking to iFollow MK Dons in his maiden interview, Sweeting noted the importance of improving upon the 13th-placed finish MK Dons recorded last season as they continue their development under Russell Martin.

“We're not sat here thinking the style is fantastic with a 13th-placed finish, we're thinking what's next? How can we improve?

“We look at some of the goals we've conceded and where they came from. That's the day-to-day football side of the business that I'll be involved in. Driving our standards and making sure we improve.

“We'll all admit that 13th isn't good enough, we want to do better than that. We don't want to just finish in the top 10, we want to do the best we can possibly do. We won’t sit here and set unrealistic targets, but we have to do the best that we can. I think that's important because if you look around the place, you think we can achieve something together.”
