Oliseh excited, as Sittard qualifies for promotion playoff


Ex Super Eagles coach Sunday Ugochukwu Oliseh, is enjoying the moment alongside his club Fortuna Sittard, as they secured a promotion playoff slot.

Sittard recorded their sixth straight league win over the weekend when they defeated Jong FC Utrecht 3-1, which gave the team the opportunity to maintain top spot in the Eerste Divisie.

Former Borussia Dortmund midfielder expressed his excitement on his twitter handle on Sunday.

In his statement, “Yes, We have Qualified for D playoffs to promotion! Wow, 6th consecutive Victory yesterday Vs Jong Utrecht 3-1,stay top of the league into D new year & automatic qualification for D playoffs.Only God can help wield such a miracle: From Relegation struggle
2 Playoff in 12 months!,”


Oliseh was appointed as coach of Sittard last season when the team was on the brink of relegation, with the task of rescuing the team.

The soft spoken gaffer succeeded in rescuing the team from relegation, and turned them to promotion chasers within a year.

Sittard will cement their first position if they defeat Jong Ajax on January 12, 2018.
