Oliseh, who left his job as Super Eagles head coach position in February 2016 while the Super Eagles were still in qualification battle for Russia 2018, had managed Fortuna Sittard from the brink of relegation last season to the playoffs for top-flight promotion this term.
The club statement further reads: Sunday Oliseh’s relationship with other personnel at the club left them with no choice but to let him go.
“Fortuna Sittard immediately relieve Sunday Oliseh of his duties,” the club announced on their official website on Wednesday.
“The club management makes this decision as a result of the repeatedly culpable actions for a long period by the trainer towards several persons in the organization.
“Several attempts by the club to move the trainer to other behavior remained unfortunately without result, resulting in an unworkable situation as a result.”
“The board of Fortuna Sittard emphasizes that the decision to disband Sunday Oliseh is not motivated by the current sporting performance,” the club added.
“Because of his inadmissible actions, the coach has made the co-operation 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.”
