Head coach of Dutch second division team Fortuna Sittard, Sunday Oliseh has blamed the recent losses in the league on the unavailability of three key players in the squad.

Oliseh’s Fortuna Sittard lost consecutive games against NAC Breda and VVV Venlo and were without their influential players Emrah Bassan, Kamen Hadzhiev and Ferry de Regt.

“As a team, the absence of these players (Bassan, Hadzhiev and de Regt) was obvious and it affected the team,” Oliseh told Complete Sports ahead of his side’s home clash against De Graafschap.

“We hope to return to winning ways. I thank God that for the six-game unbeaten streak. We had almost everybody fit and no red cards.”

Oliseh’s club now occupy the 16th position with 31 points from 30 games
