Livorno president warns coach Orsi

Livorno president Aldo Spinelli admits coach Nando Orsi is under pressure after Wednesday night's defeat by Napoli.

"I'm not just angry with Orsi, but also with the players," he rasped. "There are some things you shouldn't have to watch.

"Orsi's job isn't in question, but things need to change as they can't carry on like this.

"Napoli deserved to win and were better than us on all fronts. The crowd at the Stadio San Paolo are unique as well and they celebrated the goal like they had won the Champions League."

Spinelli also suggested that it may be him rather than Orsi to leave the Stadio Armando Picchi as the pressures of the job are taking their toll.

"It's becoming ever more difficult to play a role in football," he moaned.

"The travelling is really punishing, but that doesn't mean I am throwing in the sponge.

"If there were a Livorno native ready to buy the club I would consider, but it needs to be a football lover because this job is not easy."
