Just hours after his suspension as head coach of Dutch Second Division clubs, Fortuna Sittard, former Super Eagles’ coach, SundayOgochukwu Oliseh made a shocking revelation that he refused to partake in illegal activities by the club’s hierarchy, hence his sack.
However, AOIFootball.com findings reveal that Turkish owners of the club really wanted to induct him and his officials into match-fixing by paying them cash, a decision Oliseh rejected.
A very close friend of the former player told AOIFootball.com exclusively that the club’s Turkish owners have long wanted the Nigerian out of the club because he refused to compromise.
“I and my coaches refused cash payments and our Turkish owners did not like it,” a very close source to Oliseh said.
The source, however, declined to give further details and pleaded with Nigerians to support the former Eagles’ captain at this trying time instead of criticizing him.
Fortuna had in an earlier statement, said they were letting the Nigerian go because they could not put up with his attitude. Oliseh replied that he was fired because he refused to partake in illegal activities at the club.
