Nigerian coach Sunday Oliseh has been sacked by Dutch club Fortuna Sittard just three weeks after leading the club to their first title in 21 years. Oliseh was appointed as coach of Fortuna Sittard in December 2016 with the club on the verge of relegation from the Eerste Divisie, the second-highest tier of football in the Netherlands.

This season, Fortuna Sittard have impressed under the former Super Eagles boss and were on Friday, January 12 named Second-period champion of Eerste Divisie after beating Ajax Jong 2-1.

The win which Fortuna’s seventh consecutive wins made the Second Period champions of the Dutch Eerste Divisie. That was their first title in 21 years. They are currently third on the Eerste Divisie table just two points behind leaders NEC are still in the fight for promotion to the Eredivisie.

Fall out with club's management
Despite these feats, Oliseh is said to be sacked by Fortuna Sittard after he reportedly fell out with the club’s management.

According to Dutch football website, VI, the club management have been unhappy over his autonomous style of management and his open criticism of his players. While Fortuna Sittard have not confirmed Oliseh’s sack, some reports state that Oliseh’s  relationship with the club’s management has totally broken down.

According to Sittard Geleen Oliseh is overseeing training as at the time of this report. Sittard Geleen also reports that the Fortuna Sittard had overlooked Oliseh’s strong-handed approached because of the good results he was getting.  However after their the excellent KNVB Cup run came to an end with a home 4-2 loss to Az Alkmaar in December 2017, Oliseh’s team started to decline.

After a 3-0 loss away at Dordrecht on Friday, January 19, Oliseh opening criticised his players saying that only 12 players who can play at Eerste Divisie level. This comment infuriated players which has dampened the atmosphere in the club.

As a sign of how bad things have gotten at the club, Sittard Geleen reports that Oliseh stayed in the dugout all through the Sittard’s home 2-1 loss to FC Emmen on Friday, January 26.
Reporters will continue to monitor the developing reports on this story.
