Liverati ready for ‘difficult’ challenge.

New Leyton Orient manager Fabio Liverani feels the next seven games will go a long way to deciding their fate this season.

The 38-year-old Italian met the media for the very first time this afternoon at Brisbane Road and admits to start off with it will be challenging.

“It is obviously going to be very difficult in the beginning but the challenge is good. “I am very enthusiastic about the job and I came here because the project is a long term one and every gaffer needs time.

“I have a long contract to try and play well, pick up points and escalate the table this season but to also plan for the future.”

Liverani has spent the last few days on the training ground having been appointed on Monday, and though the current squad has a number of players out injured, he has been impressed by what he has seen from the group.

“I am happy about the quality of players and I am happy with the way they are concentrating in training,” said Liverani.

“I think because the group was so close at Wembley it is almost impossible that the group is in this current situation.

“The aim is to start well and escalate up the table and I am sure this group is stronger than the table suggests now so with some good work and attitude I am confident we will escalate the table.”

And the former Lazio and Palermo midfielder feels the immediate challenge is to get the O’s as far up the table as possible, before reassessing their aspirations in March.

“Realistically what I think to be successful is to move up the table and to try to do the maximum that is possible,” he remarked.

“The aim is to stay as far away from the bottom four as possible.

“Nothing is impossible to achieve. The target is to move as far up the table as possible and we will see in March what situation we are in. I think the next seven games will tell us what part of the table we will be in.”
