MK Dons assistant manager Hogg insists no regrets leaving Newcastle

MK Dons assistant manager Chris Hogg has no regrets leaving Newcastle.

Hogg left the U23 job just weeks before Newcastle was sold this season.

He told ChronicleLive: "We played away at Liverpool with the under-23s, and that evening I got a phone call. By the end of that week, I'm arriving in Milton Keynes and getting unveiled with Liam (Manning) as part of the management team.

"It was a real dash, a real short window where I had to have some really difficult conversations with people I'd developed close relationships within the academy and down at the stadium. It came out of the blue for everybody, especially Newcastle. It was one of those situations where I had to be honest and go with my gut feeling.

"I wouldn't have left Newcastle for anybody else. I wouldn't have even considered leaving my role at the football club. Liam was the only man in football who I would have even entertained the question from."
