Oliseh excited as Fortuna Sittard gains promotion


Dutch Eerste Divisie side Fortuna Sittard secured automatic promotion to the elite division on Saturday after they defeated PSV II 1-0.

The team garnered  78 points from 38 matches to return to the Eredivisie after 16 years of absence.

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh who is at loggerheads with the club management congratulated the team and reiterated his position with the team via his twitter handle.

“Congratulations to the Players of Fortuna Sittard,fans,club and all well wishers as Fortuna Sittard Gains Promotion to the 1st Division, Proud to be Chief Coach Of this team.God is great!” Oliseh wrote.

Oliseh took over the team in 2016 when they were on the brink of relegation and turned around the team’s fortunes.

With Oliseh in charge, the team recorded emphatic back to back wins before the relationship between coach and management collapsed.

Fortuna Sittard is yet to announce a substantive manager since Oliseh stepped aside but the team is under the tutelage of the assistant coach.
