Former Super Eagles head coach Sunday Oliseh took a swipe at Fortuna Sittard after the second division Dutch club relieved him of his duties as their coach.

The club’s management had announced his sacking in a statement on Wednesday, saying the decision was as a result of his reported culpable actions for a longer period towards several persons in the organisation.

They claimed to have made several attempts to ensure Oliseh changes his behaviour but were unfortunately without any positive result.

“The board of Fortuna Sittard emphasises that the decision to disband Sunday Oliseh is not motivated by the current sporting performance (but) because of his inadmissible actions.

“The coach has made the cooperation with many people within the organisation impossible – from players to employees. Fortuna Sittard regrets the decision, but states that the club interest goes above all else,” the club had said.

Reacting to the allegations through his Twitter handle, Oliseh noted that the decision was made because he disagreed to get involved in illegal activities.

“I confirm: Due to my refusal to participate in illegal activities at Fortuna Sittard and violate the Law, I have been suspended from my duties as coach by the foreign owners of Fortuna,” he said.

The former Nigerian international further describe his sacking as “Unfortunate for the lovely fans, my players, and our hard-fought phenomenal positioning for promotion.”

Oliseh led Fortuna Sittard from the brink of relegation last season to the playoffs for top-flight promotion this season and are currently third on the league table.
