Oliseh Officially Announces End Of Fortuna Sittard Contract

Former Super Eagles captain and head coach Sunday Oliseh has announced that his contract with newly promoted Dutch Eredivisie club Fortuna Sittard as chief coach has come to an end, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
 
Oliseh was appointed the Fortuna Sittard coach in December 2016 when they were struggling in the Dutch second-tier. He saved them from relegation to the third division last season and then got them into the promotion play-offs before falling out with the management.
 
He was suspended allegedly for insubordination and was suspended. The former Ajax and Juventus midfielder’s case with Fortuna Sittard had to be resolved through arbitration. 
 
“Today 1st Of May 2018 officially ends my contract with Fortuna Sittard as Chief Coach. A big thank you to all who helped make this past 17 months a phenomenal success, especially Gino Facenna,Alex Voigt,my players, people of Sittard and all well wishers. Stay blessed,” Oliseh tweeted on Tuesday.
 
Oliseh also set a new record as the first coach to ever win eight consecutive home games in the history of Fortuna Sittard and was also the first coach ever in the club’s history to win seven consecutive games.
He congratulated Fortuna Sittard last week on their promotion to the Dutch top flight.

    You know something, When you are looking for a job, you have to try sell yourself. That’s what is going on here. A child must not throw stone into the Market. Enough said.

  • His attitude cost him from being part of the team to the top flight

  • Truth is oliseh has attitude problems! A man must be diplomatic at all times and sometimes be highly political in relating to your employers. Oliseh is easily carried away and he is forming a pep or sir alex Ferguson. managers who can have their way with board members because they have won trophies abound. Oliseh has really devalued himself. He abandon his own country Nigeria and subsequently failed to qualify for the cup of nations. Of course he will never ever be given any chance ever again forever even the full africa self. In Europe nko? He still don fuck up again. As Nigeria captain he was fighting all and sundry like a kid who lacks common sense! Diplomacy and politics and common sense are the basics foundations of an aspiring coaching person. Oliseh is better groom as a pundit where like other pundits he can throw common sense away and behave or talk anyhow.

    We are not looking at Oliseh as a player but only as a couch. Did you see how he tear down the late Steve Kashi ?. He never stop until he got his way. Later people said that the late Kashi put a “cause” on him. Oliseh bite the finger that fed him. Attitude is one of the most important elements in our social interactions. If one does not have it or have the worse of it, then expect always, negative re-actions also.

    I don’t know why we are like this in Africa. This is our own who is trying to make name in the coaching world and never did woefully both home and abroad but instead for us to support him with our words of encouragement, we like to bring out his weakness and castigate our own man. He won the case against his employer or do yourself guys have a better way he would have rejected the tax fraud approach with his employer and still serve as the coach of the club? Aba! He has done well so far. We all have our shortcomings and we all read later what most of our national coaches experienced while serving the nation which cannot be said of the politicians that are serving or have served this country. Oliseh plead ignore the beefers, atleast you are not castigated or condemned by the Europeans a they see and understand better than we the Africans who continue to celebrate failure and bad leadership of our political leaders. The sky is the beginning o your success. Fortuna Sittard already promoted and take it or leave it, you are part of the history. Congrats!!!

    May I use this medium to congratulate our amiable, hardworking son and coach over the promotion of his highly technical team-FORTUNA SITTARD. It is no mean feat considering the modest nature of the club. Your performance has really not only boosted your CV but also just like ZINEDINE ZIDANE et al spoken eloquently about the ability of Africans in the coaching sphere. Congrats once more!
    To my fellow compatriots, objectivity matters a lot. What we say might not matter but the way we say it. Why can’t we firstly congratulate our illustrious son who just achieved a no mean feat before bringing to the fore his weak points? Just imagine critisism in a case he outrightly won against the club management. A clear corruption case that would have landed him in jail had it been he towed the line of some of my fellow commentators by being “diplomatic”. It is true Oliseh has his shortcomings just like everyone else, that will never make me to blame him where he doesn’t deserve blame.
    Let me prophesy! OLISEH will make it in Europe where transparency and hardwork is celebrated unlike here.
