Becchetti right for Orient - Hearn

Barry Hearn tells BBC London that new Leyton Orient owner Francesco Becchetti has the finances to take the club a long way and expects them to be in the Championship within three years.

The Italian businessman completed his takeover of the east London club earlier this week.

Meanwhile Becchetti, the 47-year-old owner of an energy group, says Orient will only leave the Matchroom Stadium "if the club obtains good results and more than 10,000 people would want to support us".
