Former captain and coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Sunday Oliseh has been appointed as the new manager of German regional side SV Straelen, the club has announced.
Oliseh will be the coach of the team for one year according to the president of the team “Sunday Oliseh will be our new coach. In the last 24 hours we have also been able to agree on an employment contract until June 30, 2023. We look forward to working together,” the President Hermann Tecklenburg told “Reviersport”.
Oliseh’s last coaching job was in 2018 when he worked for a little over a year as coach of the second division Dutch side. He was sacked after a row with the hierarchy of the club. Prior to that job he worked as coach of the senior national team of Nigeria but left less than a year into the job.
