BREAKING | Sunday Oliseh Confirms Exit From Fortuna Over Refusal to Engage in ‘Illegality’

Coach Sunday Oliseh has confirmed his exit from Second division Dutch club Fortuna Sittard.

The club in a statment on Wednesday said they parted ways with Oliseh over actions not related to on-field performance.

Oliseh in a tweet confirmed his exit, stating: “I confirm: Due to my refusal to participate in illegal activities at Fortuna Sittard & violate the Law, I have been suspended from my duties as Coach by the Foreign Owners of Fortuna. Unfortunate for the lovely fans, my players & our hard fought phenomenal positioning for promotion.”

Oliseh, who left the Super Eagles head coach position in February 2016, has led Fortuna Sittard from the brink of relegation last season to the play-offs for top flight promotion this term.

But the club, who employed Oliseh in January 2017, insist Oliseh’s relationship with other personnel at the club left them with no choice but to let him go.

“Fortuna Sittard immediately relieve Sunday Oliseh of his duties,” the club announced on their official website on Wednesday.

“The club management makes this decision as a result of the repeatedly culpable actions for a long period by the trainer towards several persons in the organization.

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

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

“Because of his inadmissible actions, the coach has made the co-operation 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.”
