Ross Embleton sat down with leytonorient.com to discuss returning to the position of Interim Head Coach ahead of this weekend’s game against Scunthorpe United.

“It has always been the case that I’m incredibly privileged to manage this Club, for any amount of games, whether it be the three games I did two years ago, the interim period I had in recent times and to be back here again in terms of making sure that we try to help take the Club forward again.”

When asked whether he had reservations about returning to his interim position, Embleton replied: “No certainly not. I think I never made it clear to people, other than those close to me, there were a number of factors that went towards me deciding at the time that I didn’t want to become the permanent Manager.

“That’s not the case at the moment. Again, I’m going back to being in the role as interim/caretaker. I’m proud and I always feel as though I’m prepared to step in and know what the group needs, what I think is going to help the Club be successful. To put together what I feel the supporters and everyone want to see out on the pitch, not just tomorrow but week in, week out, in terms of how we go and approach games.

“It’s always something I’m comfortable and willing to step back into. Obviously I didn’t want to have stepped into this situation so quickly because ultimately somebody has lost their job. I’m always prepared to step back in and we will see where it goes in terms of the role next.”
