Barry Hearn: I sold crisis-hit Leyton Orient to the wrong person

Leyton Orient are on the verge of dropping out of the Football League.

Former Leyton Orient owner Barry Hearn has said he made a mistake in selling the stricken club to Francesco Becchetti and has urged the Italian to sell up.

Hearn still retains the honorary presidency of Orient, who are on the brink of dropping out of the Football League after a nightmare season of managerial departures, an adjourned winding up order and unpaid players.

Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek, Hearn -- who owned the club for 19 years but no longer has day-to-day involvement -- said: "Sadly, I sold to the wrong person.

"Everybody, including myself, thought it was wonderful, hoping to go to the next level with the investment these billionaires bring.

"Mr Becchetti hasn't let anyone down with the amount of money he's put in. What nobody could have envisaged or foreseen was the inordinately terrible management decisions and involvement Mr Becchetti has had. Ten managers in three seasons is unthinkable.

"The fact wages of both players and employees have not been paid -- these people have mortgages, bills, children -- that is where my tolerance of the fact Becchetti has ownership has moved to another level.

"That level is: this man has to go. If this is how he treats people, he has to go."

Hearn, 69, has distanced himself from retaking control of Orient but said he would offer "background" assistance to interested parties.
