Patrick's praise for new Dons boss Jackson

Former Dons loanee gives his thoughts on Mark Jackson's appointment...

24 December 2022

Patrick Bamford believes Mark Jackson will be a ‘fantastic’ Head Coach, following his appointment at MK Dons.

Bamford, who made 44 appearances for MK Dons across three loan spells with the Club, worked with Jackson following his ascension to the first-team coaching staff at Elland Road in March.

Speaking on his move to MK Dons, Bamford said: “He’s a great person and a great coach.

“He came up to the first team at a difficult time and was really composed and relaxed in a tough situation, in the position we were in last year.

“The way he was able to use man-to-man coaching, as well as speaking to the players to keep the calm, was excellent but also his use of positive reinforcement to let us know what we needed to do tactically.

“I remember when I was coming back from my injury and I played with the Under-23s, the respect he got automatically from all the players showed that he’s got that personable side to him that automatically makes players like him. I think he will be a fantastic coach.”
