Peterborough United boss Grant McCann reveals respect for MK Dons' Karl Robinson
Peterborough boss Grant McCann has said there is "mutual respect" between himself and his MK Dons counterpart Karl Robinson.
McCann faced Robinson's Dons as a player, most notably in the 2011 League One play-off semi-finals when he scored in both legs of the tie.
Posh play the Dons in a League One match at Stadium:MK on Saturday.
"I think he tried to sign me once or twice before," McCann, 36, told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
"He is a young manager, someone I look up to. I see that it's possible, with hard work and dedication, that you can go a long way - and he's doing that."
Peterborough sit one point behind the Dons after four league games and they are set to face each other for the first time since the 2014-15 season, when they both won their home games.
"We've had some good battles with them over the years, it's always a great game," McCann said.
"We want to make sure we go there and get a good performance and a good result."
