Francesco Becchetti buys majority stake in League One Leyton Orient

Italian businessman Francesco Becchetti has bought Barry Hearn's 90% stake in Leyton Orient. Becchetti has promised to invest serious money into the club to help them go one step further than last season's playoff heartbreak.

As a massive lifelong Orient fan, this is exciting news for the club and so I have decided to use the editor to bring Becchetti to the game. I have removed Barry Hearn, Eddie Hearn and Steve Dawson as members of the board and put Becchetti as the Chairman. I have left Matt Porter as a Director like in real life. I have put Becchetti as a Foreground Sugar Daddy Chairman as he has pledged to invest in the club for the entirety of his ownership. I also have put former Italian international Mauro Milanese as his favoured personnel as it has been reported that Becchetti wishes to install him as staff in some capacity but hasn't confirmed it as yet. I will be taking charge of the club as myself replacing Russell Slade. I imagine there will be added pressure to deliver results seeing as the budget will be increased so success will have to be immediate.
