SV Staelen yesterday confirmed the resignation of former Super player and coach Sunday Oliseh as the club head coach. Sunday Oliseh who joined the German club this season decided to end his coaching stint with the club just after spearheading five games. Sunday Oliseh side remains the only club in the Regional liga yet to pick a point from the available 15 after five games. Oliseh announced his resignation after the 2-0 loss at Fortuna Düsseldorf II on Sunday. Seven goals conceded, one goal scored from 5 matches.
In a club statement, it was confirmed that Sunday Oliseh informed the President of the club Hermann Tecklenburg who’s currently on an assignment in Mallorca via phone call about his decision not to continue as the manager of the club.
The club director Kevin Wolze broke who broke the news to the team, which had gathered for training at 10 a.m. on Sunday, said:
“Sunday obviously had the feeling that the team could no longer be reached. We have to accept this decision. It doesn’t make sense to try to persuade him to continue,” said Wolze. The search for a successor is not easy.
“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,” said Wolze. As a reminder: Before Oliseh’s commitment, ex-national player Thomas Brdaric had given the club a short-term rejection; SV Straelen then negotiated with the long-standing Mönchengladbach youth coach Sven Schuchardt and ex-coach Rachid Sraizi.
“In the next few days we will be receiving a number of applications. The players and I focus on the sporting side. After the cup game, top favourite Preussen Munster comes to us. We don’t have the opportunity to worry about other things,” said Wolze.
