All change at Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient have announced two new appointments to the club's hierarchy.

The moves come in the aftermath of Italian Francesco Becchetti's takeover of the club and see Alessandro Angelieri appointed as Orient's new chief executive, with Mauro Milanese the new sporting director.

The club's statement on their official website read: "Angelieri has experience as the head of commercial for an Italian broadcasting company and will be in control of the off-the-field running of the business and look after the administrative team.

"Angelieri will sit on the board at Leyton Orient."

It continued: "Former Italy defender Mauro Milanese has joined as sporting director and has been working closely with manager Russell Slade and acting as a bridge between the coaching staff and the new owner.

"Milanese had an extensive playing career both in England with QPR and abroad with the likes of Inter Milan. Since retiring from playing he has gathered experience as a sporting director with Italian side Varese."The appointments are not the last of Becchetti's changes since buying out Barry Hearn last month, with the statement confirming more additions will be made at the Sky Bet League One club.
