Today’s press: national team coach Razvan Lucescu resigns and signs a deal with Rapid!
- According to gsp.ro, Razvan Lucescu has agreed to return to Rapid, leaving the national team after the 3-0 win against Bosnia, the kind of result he had asked for, in order to stay in charge. This move was in the air for some time, with Rapid signing players that Lucescu Jr. tried to promote in the national team, like Ciprian Deac (on loan from Schalke), Iulian Apostol or Cristian Oros.
- Laszlo Boloni, former Lens coach: “I’m interested in the position and there’s a chance for me to return as Romania’s national team coach.” Boloni is also in talks to take over at PAOK.
- Fatih Terim was in the stands, watching Romania – Bosnia. Possible targets: Ianis Zicu and Gabriel Torje.
- Adrian Mutu won’t travel with the team for Romania’s South American tour. His place could be taken by Dinamo’s George Tucudean, a talented player, no doubt, but who has been heavily promoted recently.
- Petrolul Ploiesti, Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt, FC Bihor and Concordia Chiajna have promoted to Romania’s first division.
