Oliseh puts family first, rejects €4m offer to manage Turkish club

Published

Sunday Oliseh has turned down a mouth-watering offer to manage unnamed Turkish second division club because he still wants to be with his family, Sports Extra can report.

The former Super Eagles and Fortuna Sittard manager was offered a three-year deal worth €3m annually with another €1m in bonuses.

Oliseh met with the chairman of the club in Paris when both parties discussed the prospect of him taking over the club.

But the former Nigeria captain decided it was not the right move for him on professional grounds and rejected the offer.

“It was quite lucrative far better than the one I had at Sittard but there were reasons I opted out,” Oliseh told Sports Extra.

Oliseh, 45, believes he still has much to offer at the top level and is willing to bide his time until the right job comes up following his dismissal as Sittard’s manager in 2018.

“There are offers at the moment and I am confident that I will get some more close to my base so I can be close to my family.”

Man Utd threaten to walk away from deal for Sancho

Manchester United are on the verge of walking away from a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, the UK Mirror reports.

The Bundesliga club is refusing to lower their £110m valuation of Sancho, with United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, not willing to pay above £80m.

It was believed the two teams would meet somewhere in the middle, with negotiations over staggered payments also an option.

But after failing to come to an agreement, the deal looks to be on the brink of collapse.

United may even consider returning next summer for Sancho, while looking at cheaper options this year.

The Red Devils believe paying anything more than £100m is ‘unrealistic’, given the current financial situation caused by COVID-19, and feel Dortmund are being unreasonable with their demands.

Fulham beat Brentford 2-1 in the Championship play-off final to secure an immediate return to the Premier League thanks to two extra-time goals from Joe Bryan.

The left-back caught Brentford goalkeeper David Raya off guard from 40 yards in the 105th minute of the game at Wembley, with the Spaniard expecting a cross and then unable to scamper back and save Bryan’s skidding low effort.

With Brentford pouring forward in search of an equaliser, Bryan burst forward and combined with Aleksandar Mitrovic before stabbing past Raya to make the game safe with three minutes remaining.

Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back with a header from eight yards out in the fourth minute of added time, but it was too late for the Bees to spark a comeback.

Before Tuesday’s game, since the 1990/1991 season, Brentford have lost in all of their play-off campaigns.

The last time they played in the English top flight was way back in 1947.

With this, Fulham will now join Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion in earning promotion from England’s second tier to the EPL.
