Dutch club Fortuna Sittard have announced they have placed coach Sunday Oliseh “non-active” after what they described as his poor working relationship with both players and officials at the second division club.
Fortuna Sittard made it clear that this decision was not caused by the team’s results as Oliseh has already qualified them for the promotion playoffs.
The official statement by Fortuna Sittard read: “Fortuna Sittard immediately puts coach Sunday Oliseh on non-active.
“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 organisation.
“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 emphasises 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.”
This decision comes just weeks after the same club denied Oliseh had been sacked.
It would be recalled that in 2016 Oliseh walked out on the Super Eagles following a frosty working relationship with his bosses at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
