Ex Super Eagle Coach Sunday Oliseh Makes History in Holland

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has made history as coach of Fortuna Sittard after recording six consecutive wins at home.

Oliseh expressed his elation at the club’s record he achieved following his team’s 2-1 home win over Almere in the Eerste Divisie (Dutch second division) on Friday evening.

The former Juventus and Borrusia Dortmund midfielder took to Twitter on Saturday morning to express his excitement on the milestone.

“Our 2-1 victory over Almere, crowns me with the club record as the only coach in the history of Fortuna Sittard to win 6 consecutive home games,” Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle.

The Dutch side’s last five results at home prior to Friday’s game are: versus Dordrecht 5-1; versus Al Jazira 3-2; versus Volendam; 2-0 versus Oss and 4-1 against Helmond Sport.

Fortuna Sittard are currently fifth in the Eerste Divisie table with six points in three games.

Oliseh was appointed coach of the Dutch side in December 2016. Prior to his appointment, he’s been serving as a member of the prestigious FIFA Technical Study Group and had a nine month stint as national coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, during which he recorded six wins, five draws and two losses.
