Leyton Orient’s players as well as staff have already called on the game’s authorities to immediately intervene over the football club’s shocking inability to meet the previous month’s payroll.
Evidently, the London club’s currently in turmoil on and off the field because on Saturday relegation from the English Football League was officially confirmed, when controversial Italian owner Francesco Becchetti along with his directors tend to hide from the answer.
The previous week the club’s staff along with players issued a statement, in an attempt to get assurances that they’ll be paid this month. Therefore, they had to urge the EFL as well as Football Association to take instant action after the football club’s failure to adequately respond. Besides this, the players also complained that their last statement, appealing to the club’s board of directors, generated nothing, but a wall of silence.
The previous month the club experienced a winding-up order over unpaid taxes, reportedly accounting for £250,000.
