DP83867IR: MSP430 LaunchPad with USB-2MDIO GUI tool

Part Number: DP83867IR

DP83867IRRGT PHY transceiver is interfaced with a Xilinx FPGA. When MSP430 LaunchPad and USB-2MDIO GUI tool are used for accessing PHY transceiver register for debugging via MDIO and MDC signals( LaunchPad MDC(P1.4) and MDIO(P1.5)), does the MDIO/MDC traces on our PCB board need to be disconnected? Or it doesn't matter, just connect MSP430 LaunchPad P1.4 to MDC signal and P1.5 to MDIO signal?

Please advise
