Wotte suspected to have fixed Universitatea’s last match!
Well, this can only happen in Romania: a Dutch coach, with an excellent reputation, who comes here to save a team from relegation, is accused of something Romanian players, referees, club officials and club owners are doing on a regular basis! That’s why foreign coaches and players should think twice before saying yes to an offer to come here.
In Romania, football is a mud fight – and I’m not referring to the muddy pitches ;-) – once you’re in, it’s impossible to come out clean!
PS For those interested in Craiova’s scenario (who offered it to the press, putting more pressure on a coach that should get a lot of money, if sacked), Wotte has been accused that before the game against International (lost 1-3, at home) he went to a meeting with people close to International’s owner, Benone Lazar. Wotte is currently suspended, which means that he’s still under contract, but not allowed to train the players and sit on the bench, with veteran midfielder Eugen Trica and Craiova’s legendary player Ilie Balaci taking care of things until the end of the season.
