Fortuna Sittard, the former club of Nigerian coach, Sunday Oliseh, has threatened to take legal action against the former Super Eagles’s star.
The club wants to drag him to court over his claims that the Dutch second division club wanted him to violate the law.
Fortuna challenged the former Ajax player to substantiate his claims on Thursday or face legal action. The club wrote on their official website, “Fortuna want 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 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 employment contract of Sunday Oliseh.
"Fortuna Sittard will no longer discuss any new unfounded accusations by Sunday Oliseh on the club’s website.
Fortuna will take the appropriate legal counter measures. If there are any questions from the side of the KNVB in this respect, Fortuna Sittard is fully open to internal investigation to show that the accusations are completely unfounded.”
