Oliseh quits German club after losing first five games in charge



Oliseh wins case against Fortuna, to be compensated by club

Former Nigeria international, Sunday Oliseh has resigned from his role as manager of German Club, SV Straelen.

His decision followed a disappointing start to the season which saw his team lose their first five games and managing only one goal in all.

Ripples Nigeria had earlier reported the signing of Oliseh as the new manager of the German Regionalliga side in June this year.

The resignation means Oliseh spent just about two months with club, with his last game ending in a 2-0 defeat to Fortuna Dusseldorf.

“Sunday obviously had the feeling that the term could no longer be reached. We have to accept this decision. It doesn’t make sense to try to persuade him to continue,” Sporting director Kevin Wolze told the club’s official website.

“Obviously things have changed in the meantime. We started the season with five defeats and are currently bottom of the table.

“In addition, the squad is standing. We will take the necessary time to find a suitable successor.”

Pending when a new manager is recruited, the team is currently under the leadership of Wolze.
