Vincelot praises O’s boss Milanese as hard graft on training ground pays off

Frenchman admits O’s poor form affected them mentally.

French midfielder Romain Vincelot feels Leyton Orient players had developed a case of paranoia before their first home league win of the season last Saturday.

The Brisbane Road outfit picked up a 4-1 win over fellow League One strugglers Crewe Alexandra at the weekend to move out of the relegation zone and record their first home league success since April 26 – a staggering 210 days since their last victory.

And having only won four league games all season, Vincelot admitted they had started to doubt their own credentials.

“Sometimes everything is in the head so you have to battle with your own head to make sure you concentrate. It is all about the little details,” said Vincelot.

“We have been a bit paranoid about everything recently because every little mistake has cost us. Something 50 yards from goal would lead to a goal against us.

“It is hard because you aren’t thinking positive enough and you don’t try or don’t shoot from 25 yards because you feel you have to have another pass to make sure.

“Everything looks harder and you are thinking ‘how do we get a win?’ I think Saturday’s game is where we stepped over that.”

Dealing with that paranoia has been difficult, but the 29-year-old was quick to praise current boss Mauro Milanese for the lengths he has gone to on the training ground in a bid to eradicate it.

“We have tried really hard training wise with Mauro,” he added. “He tried to identify every little mistake that cost us and we have been working on it.

“It has been long and it could have been boring, but we have to do it because there is no other solution than to repeat it over and over again until we fix it.

“He’s been really good to identify the little areas that we really need to improve and I think with all his background having played at the top in Italy – it is a country which is aware of little details – so he gave us some tips and we took it on board and thankfully it paid off against Crewe.”
