SPORT Fortuna Sittard reveals what they’ll do to Sunday Oliseh over alleged false claims


Fortuna Sittard, the former club of Nigerian coach, Sunday Oliseh, has threatened to take legal action against the former Super Eagles’s star.

The club wants to drag him to court over his claims that the Dutch second division club wanted him to violate the law.

The club said they had fired him for “innumerable culpable acts” and a “disrupted employment relationship” with the players and other employees on Wednesday.

Oliseh was hired by the Eerste Divisie side as their manager on December 27, 2016 after he left his job as the Super Eagles coach in February 2016 under controversial circumstances.

The club has challenged the former Ajax player to substantiate his claims on Thursday or face legal action.

They denied that they decided to dismiss the Nigerian from his post due to his “refusal to participate in illegal activities.”

The club wrote on their official website, “Fortuna want to fight the accusations made.

“In this context, the club will also take the necessary legal follow-up steps. Fortuna does not recognise itself at all in these accusations, which were not highlighted by Sunday Oliseh internally.

“The case will be presented by Fortuna Sittard to the arbitration committee of the KNVB (the Dutch Football Association), an independent body, which will now make an assessment of whether there is sufficient grounds to terminate the employment contract of Sunday Oliseh.

“Fortuna Sittard will no longer discuss any new unfounded accusations by Sunday Oliseh on the club’s website.

“Fortuna will take the appropriate legal countermeasures. If there are any questions from the side of the KNVB in this respect, Fortuna Sittard is fully open to internal investigation to show that the accusations are completely unfounded.”
