MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has no regrets over signing Jimmy Bullard.
â€śThe misconception of the football world was that Jimmy was coming here and we were paying him an awful lot of money. It was a remarkable deal and one where there was no risk, to a certain extent, to anybody,â€ť said Robinson.
â€śI have tremendous respect for Jimmy Bullard. Heâ€™s gone up in my estimation. He could have just sat on the bench and taken a minimum amount of money home every week, but he chose to be honest with me and himself.
â€śIn Jimmyâ€™s last training session, Mick Harford came up to me and said he had been out of this world. Jimmy decided to train like he used to, but he couldnâ€™t recover as well as he used to and felt a lot of pain.
â€śThe type of character that Jimmy is, he doesnâ€™t do anything by halves, if heâ€™s going to do it he has to do it properly and I have tremendous respect for him. He will be a friend of the clubâ€™s for a long time.
â€śI really wish Iâ€™d worked with Jimmy when he was younger because I think heâ€™s someone I would have really enjoyed working with when he was at the top of him game.â€ť
