Oliseh’s Rescue Mission To Fortuna Sittard Close To Completion As Unbeaten Run Extends


Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh is nine points away from rescuing Dutch second division side Fortuna Sittard from relegation following yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Jong PSV.

Oliseh was appointed by the club at the start of the year with a mandate to steer them away from relegation to the third division, which if successful will trigger an automatic contract extension for the former Ajax midfielder.

He has taken to the job quite well with his team only suffering defeat once since his appointment as coach, and they are presently in a six game unbeaten run.

Their fine run means they now need nine points from their remaining games to guarantee their stay in the second division, although they appear to be safe judging by their current position of 15th on the table.

However to be mathematically sure, nine points from their remaining ten games will be okay to see them retain their status for another season, and also keep Oliseh for another season.
