Fortuna have been relegated from the top division for 16 years and Oliseh says he is determined to rewrite the history books with the modest Dutch second-tier club.

The former Ajax and Juventus midfielder told nos.nl in a video interview that he owes his impressive start to club coaching to the Fortuna Sittard fans who continually cheer the team to victory.

“When I came here (to Fortuna Sittard), the first question from a journalist was: what the hell are you doing here?” Oliseh told nos.nl in a video interview.

“The fans of the club have been laughed at for years, I want to make them proud again.

“We have qualified for the play-offs which is good. We will not rest on our oars because we currently lead the table. We will work hard to achieve our aim and if promotion to the Eredivisie comes it will be great but we have 19 more games to show we can get back there.”

Fortuna Sittard were relegated from the Dutch Eredivisie league in 2002.

They currently lead the Eerste Divisie log with 41 points from 19 games having played one more game than NEC in second place with 40 points from 18 games.
