Leyton Orient have confirmed the terrible news that their manager Justin Edinburgh has passed away via a statement on their website.
The 49-year-old spent last weekend in Madrid with his former Tottenham Hotspur team mates and fellow legends for the Champions League final against Liverpool and suffered a heart attack on Monday after returning to England and was admitted to hospital where he sadly died, today.

He was currently the manager of Leyton Orient and had guided the club to promotion to League Two this season.
Our thoughts are with Justin’s wife Kerri and their children Charlie and Cydnie at this very tragic time.
