    Dutch Club Fortuna Sittard Suspends Coach Sunday Oliseh

    BEVERLY HILLS, February 14, (THEWILL) – After four straight losses, Netherlands’ second tier side Fortuna Sittard have suspended former Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh for what it calls “unacceptable actions”.

    The club, in a statement released on Wednesday said that Oliseh has been put on “non-active” duties, stopping short of saying he has been sacked.

    “Several attempts by the club to encourage a change in the coach’s behaviour have unfortunately not worked, resulting in an unworkable situation,” the statement said.

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

    “The coach’s unacceptable actions have made cooperation between 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 was appointed as Sittard coach in late December 2016 and are currently third in the table and are five points behind leader NEC.
