Lucchesi Loving Life at Orient
- Sport Careers Agency client appoint Leyton Orient Head Fitness Coach in June
- Preparing first team squad for new season
- Realised ambition of working in UK club
Expert fitness coach Simone Lucchesi is relishing his new role- putting Leyton Orient's players through their paces ahead of the new League Two season.
The Italian was appointed Head Sports Scientist and Fitness Coach for the O's in June, taking over from the outgoing Craig Smith.
Lucchesi was most recently working with FK Cukaricki in Serbia and is realising a long-standing ambition of working with an English league club.
Appointing the experienced Lucceshi was something of a coup for Orient- he has built-up a wealth of knowledge over a well-travelled career that has taken in spells at Seria clubs Lazio and Sampdoria as well as NASL side New York Cosmos.
Lucceshi has settled in well at Brisbane Road,
"I am very happy with my new role. I've been looking to work for the right club in the UK for a while now so it is great to be here.
"'The set-up at the club is very god and I'm really enjoying working with all of the players and staff.
"I'm looking forward to the season starting and the team showing everyone what we can do"
