Leyton Orient has appointed Jobi McAnuff as interim manager after parting ways with head coach Ross Embleton. 

Orient parted ways with Embleton, 39, following the club’s 3-1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, 27 February. 

McAnuff, 39, has made more than 150 appearances for Orient and captained the club to the National League title in the 2018/19 season.

“Jobi is a natural leader and someone we feel has got what it takes to make a top class manager,” said Chairman Nigel Travis. 

“As a Club, we feel that the play-offs are still within reach for this season and we have made that clear to Jobi, who understands and agrees with us that it should remain our focus and target.”

Orient is currently 14th in League Two and without a win in their last seven games. 

Travis said it was an “extremely difficult decision” to part ways with Embleton and one done “with heavy hearts”. 

“Nobody can underestimate, nor should ever forget, the influence and impact Ross has had on the rebirth of our Club,” he added.

“He was an integral part of our National League success and he stood up to lead the team following the tragic loss of Justin Edinburgh, and again put himself forward when we were later in need of a Head Coach.

“He is a bright young coach with a strong philosophy and some excellent ideas, but the board felt that with the investment made in the squad and the current situation in football that we should be looking to push on at an accelerated rate and unfortunately in recent weeks that has not happened.”

McAnuff will continue to work with existing staff members Danny Senda, Dean Brill and Matt Harrold.
