League Two bound Leyton Orient have announced the departure of manager Fabio Liverani.

The East London club were relegated this season and have decided to start afresh in the fourth tier.

We announce today that Fabio Liverani will be leaving his role as manager of the Club by mutual consent. His assistants, Maurizio Cantarelli and Marcello Donatelli, will also be leaving the Club.

The Club would like to thank Fabio, Maurizio and Marcello for their efforts this season, and we wish them all the best for the future.

The Club will now focus on rebuilding for next season, in the hope that we can make a swift return to League One. We do not underestimate the challenge that we will face in the coming season, but the players and staff will work together to achieve the success that our loyal fans deserve. We thank you for your ongoing support.

Former Liverpool man Dossena: Arrest was over honey

Update: Mr Dossena and his wife have been informed by police that no further action is being taken against them

Leyton Orient defender Andrea Dossena says the reason he was arrested is he forgot to pay for a jar of honey.

The Italian was stopped by security at Harrods on Monday, who subsequently called police, who arrested Dossena, before later bailing him.

In regard to the news released today on some websites, I would like to make very clear that the story reported is unfounded.

I was in Harrods with my wife and my son for some shopping and I forgot to pay a honey jar and some sliced meats we had previously ordered. While exiting the shop unaware of my oversight, I was stopped by security guards [who] then called the police as a standard routine procedure.

As I wasn’t carrying with me any identity documents at the time, I was asked to go to the nearest police station in order to be identified after which I left and went back home. Hence, I have now instructed my lawyers to protect my image with all necessary legal actions against those who reported this inaccurate and tendentious news.
