Oliseh Defeats Fortuna Sittard In Dutch FA Tribunal, To Be Financially Compensated

Oliseh Defeats Fortuna Sittard In Dutch FA Tribunal, To Be Financially Compensated

By Johnny Edward:

The Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) tribunal has ruled that second division club Fortuna Sittard must pay their suspended Nigerian coach Sunday Oilseh part of his salary as compensation, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


Oliseh was suspended by Fortuna Sittard and accused of insurbudination but he also alleged that the club wanted him to be part of something shady which he refused.

Reports in Dutch outlets confirmed the KNVB verdict and added that the tribunal also ruled that Oliseh be paid.

“I’m delighted at the ruling and the most important thing for me in the judgment was that it was stated that they did not find anywhere that I was a bad employee,” Oliseh told CSN shortly after he left the tribunal. “The judgment came like an hour ago; it’s a 20-page judgment. My assistant coaches will also be compensated.

“The Federation gave the President of Fortuna Sittard (Isitan Gun) one week to pay me the compensation or to withdraw the request to terminate my contract. If he does withdraw it means he will pay more that the stipulated compensation fee.”

Oliseh however did not reveal the amount he will be compensated with.

Meanwhile, Completesportsnigeria.com also reliably gathered that Oliseh will sue the President of Fortuna Sittard for damages in the coming weeks.

The former Super Eagles captain and captain also took to Twitter to share the good news.

“Dutch court finds Fortuna Sittard guilty for not being a good employer to Sunday Oliseh and sanctions Fortuna. Most importantly The Knvb Court stated that Oliseh has not acted as a bad employee!” Oliseh wrote on Twitter.

“Consequentially, negating false claims made by Fortuna. God is great!

“The court further sanctions Fortuna Sittard to compensate me (Oliseh) financially immediately.

“I am obliged to stay as a Fortuna employee till the month of May 2018.Thanks 2 all my well wishers for your valued support all through this injustice. Thankful to God 4 his blessings!”

    Oliseh happens to be one of the very few good heads we have from this neck of the woods,but he always ends up getting on the wrong side of his employers.
    Maybe he is too frank and too open about how he sees things and that could be the reason why he is always caught up in this kind of situation.
    I wish well though.

    You will get the money but lose the job. You were on your way to the top, Oliseh, but missed it because you do not know how to relate with your employers. Who is going to employ you now? Other clubs will be scared that you will sue them also. You need to be more diplomatic… and, by the way, I have not forgiven you for abandoning the Super Eagles in the midst of a qualifier.

    There are places in this world where justice can be done. I knew Oliseh was not lying when he cried out over the bad treatment he had received. He’s a decent, straightforward and honest guy.

  • @Bomboy, this is not the time to talk about tactful or not. Maybe you have a great mind and you wished the money to be paid should have come to you. Wisdom says in such a time like this, I mean an upright black man winning a court case in a white dominated country, it says much about Sunday Oliseh. It is worth celebrating indeed. At the end of May or before, Sunday Oliseh will get another very lucrative job.

  • I like Oliseh’s honesty but he should try and be diplomatic in order to climb to the top of his chosen career.

  • What Oliseh did was a matter of principle. He did not want any shady deal to come back and haunt him. He has proven himself to be a good coach. He will get a better offer.
