Substantiate your allegations or be prepared to go to court, Fortuna Sittard tells Sunday Oliseh




Dutch second divsion team Fortuna Sittard have threatened to take former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh to court, if he fails to provide evidence of his allegations against the club. 

As we reported, Sunday Oliseh, yesterday, took to Twitter to accuse the foreign owner of the club  fired hiim because he refused to partake in an what he termed "illegal activity." 

Oliseh, who was appointed in December, 2016 wrote on twitter: "Due to my refusal to participate in Illegal activities at Fortuna Sittard and violate the law, I have been suspended from my duty as coach by the foreign owners of Fortuna." 

The club have now denied the allegation and have asked him to substantiate the allegations or face legal actions. In a statement released on their official website, the club said: "Fortuna wants to fight the accusations made."

"In this context, the club will also take the necessary legal follow-up steps. Fortuna does not recognise itself at all in all these accusations, which were not highlighted by Sunday Oliseh internally." 

"The case will be presented by Fortuna Sittard to the arbitration committee of the KNVB (the Dutch Football Association) an independent body, which will now make an assessment of whether there is sufficient grounds to terminate the emplyment contract of Sunday Oliseh."

The club also added that would "take the appropriate legal countermeasures. If there are any questions from the side of the KNVB in this respect, Fortuna Sittard is fully open to internal investigations to show that the accusations are completely unfounded." 

The club have since announced the appointment of their youth coach, Claudo Braga, as the caretaker coach until a replacement is found.
