O’s announce ex-player Neale Fenn is Riza’s assistant manager
Leyton Orient manager Omer Riza will serve a one-match touchline ban following a charge of misconduct by the Football Association.
The 37-year-old took charge of his first game as O’s boss last weekend, but was sent off at half time for misconduct.
Riza has accepted the FA charge and will serve his one-match ban at Cambridge United tomorrow (Saturday).
Orient have also announced former player Neale Fenn has joined the club as assistant manager on a contract until the end of the season.
Fenn progressed through the Tottenham Hotspur academy and had a loan spell with the O’s in 1995.
The Londoner went on to play for Peterborough United before moving to Ireland and representing several clubs in the League of Ireland including Shamrock Rovers and Cork City.
And now the 40-year-old will be part of Riza’s coaching staff at Orient on a deal until the end of the season.
