Orient Issue Leeds Statement

Orient Issue Leeds Statement

Apparently Ling's comments were his own, not the view of the club AND they were taken out of context!

Leyton Orient have released a statement today denying that it is the view of the club that they will seek further legal action should Leeds regain all 15 unlawfully stolen points.

It reads:

'Following reports in some sections of Thursday's media, the club (Leyton Orient) can clarify its position as follows: Any quotes attributed to Martin Ling regarding the Leeds United arbitration case are personal and not those of Leyton Orient FC.

'Martin's comments were taken out of context and were not meant to reflect directly on Leyton Orient FC's position on the matter. This matter will be addressed directly with the newspaper first responsible for publishing his comments.

'Leyton Orient FC will be making no further comment on either the quotes attributed to Martin Ling or on the Leeds United arbitration case.'
