Leyton Orient is now twinned with North Korea: read the chief executive bizarre stament

by | 20th, January 2017

Leyton Orient FC have issued a bizarre statement concerning the club’s future. When owner Francesco Becchetti took over in 2014, they were League One play-off finalist, narrowly lowing to Rotherham on penalties. They are now close to the bottom of League Two. In that time Orient have employed NINE managers. No player from that play-off final defeat remains at the club.

Leyton Orient’s chief executive, Alessandro Angelier has written to the fans. It’s not unlike something the North Korean would put out.

“The actions of the club over the past two-and-a-half years have always been in good faith and that can never be doubted. Mr Becchetti did not like the fan protests because at the beginning of the season everyone, supporters included, praised the club for their summer transfer business. Thereafter Mr Becchetti doesn’t play on Saturday.

“I think that within common sense, Mr Becchetti will continue to fund the club, though appropriate offers for the club will be considered. One offer has been received, but it was not acceptable for a number of reasons.”
