Sunday Oliseh Sacked As Fortuna Sittard Manager



Dutch Eerste Divisie side (second division), Fortuna Sittard on Wednesday announced the sack of their Nigerian manager Sunday Oliseh.

The 43-year old was shown the way out for ‘inadmissible actions’.

According to the board of Fortuna Sittard, the decision to sack Oliseh was not motivated by the current sporting performance which has seen them lose four games in a row.

A statement released by the club read: “The club management makes this decision as a result of the repeatedly culpable actions for a longer period by the trainer towards several persons in the organization.

“Several attempts by the club to move the trainer to other behavior were unfortunately without result, resulting in an unworkable situation.

“The board of Fortuna Sittard emphasizes that the decision to disband Sunday Oliseh is not motivated by the current sporting performance.

“Because of his inadmissible actions, the coach has made the cooperation with many people within the organization impossible.

“From players to employees. Fortuna Sittard regrets the decision, but states that the club interest goes above all else.”

Oliseh took over as head coach of Dutch second tier side Fortuna Sittard in December 2016 after signing a two-and-a-half-year deal.

He helped the club avoid relegation at the end of last season and guided the Limburg side to their first ever title in 22 years, winning the ceremonial mid-season second period title.

Sittard finished 17th in the 20-team league at the end of last season but are currently third in the table and are five points behind leader NEC.

Oliseh recorded 22 wins, eight draws and 12 defeats in 42 games in charge of Fortuna Sittard.
