Sky Bet League One strugglers Leyton Orient have announced Fabio Liverani as their new manager after Mauro Milanese was sacked earlier today.
Former Italian international Liverani has become the fourth manager to take charge of the O’s this season after his predecessor Milanese lasted a mere eight games in charge of the East London side.
During those eight games Milanese only picked up two wins as Orient dropped to a disappointing 19th in the League One table. However, Liverani has a similar track record after being sacked as Genoa boss in the Italian top flight after just one win in seven games last season.
The 38-year old, who has spent his entire playing career in Italy, made a name for himself whilst playing for Italian giants Lazio as he was capped three times for Azzurri during 2001-2006.
“I’m excited about this challenge and cannot wait to get started at Leyton Orient,” Liverani told the Orient official site
“This is a long-term project and we will work together to make it a success.”
Orient have struggled for consistency in recent months after losing long serving manager Russell Slade to Cardiff City earlier this season.
Liverani will be hoping to turn those fortunes around as the 2014 play-off finalists take on ninth placed Peterborough on Saturday.
