Leyton Orient Sack Mauro Milaneseby Jack Kitson / 08 December 2014, 12:19Tweet
Leyton Orient have sacked Mauro Milanese after just six weeks in charge at Brisbane Road. The O's have terminated the contract of the former QPR player following a poor start to life at the London club, with the Italian losing five of his eight matches in charge, including Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Gillingham in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. As a result Orient will begin the search for their fourth, yes fourth, manager this term.
Back in October Milanese was appointed as the surprise successor to interim boss Kevin Nugent, which ultimately proved to be a short-lived and unsuccessful decision by the club's owner Francesco Becchetti. During his six week tenure the O's were not only dumped out of the JPT, but they also flopped in the FA Cup. Meanwhile their league form continues to disappoint, with Milanese leaving the Londoners hovering dangerously above the relegation in 19th, having picked up just four points from five league matches.
Attention will immediately turn to the Next Leyton Orient Manager Market, which is currently led by Serse Cosmi and Fabio Liverani at this early stage in proceedings. The likes of James Beattie, Craig Hignett and Tony Mowbray also feature, as do Uwe Rosler and Dougie Freedman.
