Leyton Orient boss Liverani admits players not paid

Leyton Orient boss Fabio Liverani admits the players haven't been paid this month.

Orient's manager confirmed that the club's squad had yet to be paid, although he insisted any issues are to be cleared this week.

"There's been a slight delay due to transfers into foreign bank accounts," Liverani told BBC London after their 2-0 win against Walsall on Saturday.

"It is predicted by Wednesday that both staff and players will be paid.

"I think it has been made a lot of, I wouldn't say fuss, but attention about this, when in Italy we get money every four months in football.

"We understand it is different in England but it's not a big problem.

"There was a technical problem due to bank transfers. Perhaps the club or ourselves could have issued a statement earlier to inform the players and the staff about the delay in payment.

"There is no concern in terms of the chairman's investment in the club, which is huge. This was really a one-off situation and not an example that is going to be repeated again."
