Sunday Oliseh has confirmed his exit from Foruna Sittard with claims that his refusal to take part in fraudulent activities at the club led to his suspension.
The Dutch club side in a statement on Wednesday said they parted ways with Oliseh over actions not related to on-field performance.
Oliseh, in a tweet, confirmed his exit, stating: “I confirm: Due to my refusal to participate in illegal activities at Fortuna Sittard & violate the Law, I have been suspended from my duties as Coach by the Foreign Owners of Fortuna. Unfortunate for the lovely fans, my players & our hard fought phenomenal positioning for promotion.”

Oliseh, who left the Super Eagles head coach position in February 2016, has led Fortuna Sittard from the brink of relegation last season to the play-offs for top flight promotion this term.
But the club, who employed Oliseh on December 27, 2016, insist Oliseh’s relationship with other personnel at the club left them with no choice but to let him go.
Oliseh, however, clarified that he was suspended, not sacked, and told his own side of the story.
The 43-year-old gaffer did not reveal the illegal activities the “foreign club owners” wants him involved in when one of his Twitter followers sought an explanation.
Illegal activities? Can you shed more light?
