Former Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh hired by Dutch club Fortuna Sittard

Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh had every reason to smile following his team's 4-1 thrashing of Niger.
Sunday Oliseh has found a new job after resigning as Nigeria boss.

Dutch club Fortuna Sittard have hired former Nigeria captain and coach Sunday Oliseh as their new manager.

Oliseh, 42, stepped down as Super Eagles boss in February following claims of unpaid wages.

He now takes over the second-tier club in a return to the Netherlands, where he previously played for Ajax from 1997 to 1999.

Fortuna Sittard said Oliseh had signed an 18-month contract.

"With Sunday Oliseh we signed a young and ambitious coach with vision, one players look up to," club owner Isitan Gun said in a statement.

"We were looking for someone who plays attractive football combining it with the will to win. We think Sunday is the right one for this job."

Oliseh's first game in charge will be Jan. 13 against bottom side Achilles '29.
