A BAD INJURY suffered by loan player George Williams left MK Dons boss Karl Robinson struggling to hold back tears.

The 19-year-old Wales international has returned to parent club Fulham and is expected to be out for around six months following a successful operation, after he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament rupture in the 2-1 defeat to Chesterfield last Tuesday

Robinson, meanwhile, told reporters of the extent of his concern for Williams.

“It was one of the most difficult hours I’ve had as a manager,” he said. “The kid means so much to me as a person and I rate him so highly as a footballer.

“I went home and cried to myself because I couldn’t handle it.

“I wish him all the luck in the world. I promised him that I will be at his first game back – I’m counting down the days.”
