Best players of the season in Romania: left midfielders
- ARMAN KARAMYAN – FC Timisoara / Steaua Bucharest
- Willian Gerlem – FC Vaslui
- Ciprian Petre – Gloria Bistrita
- Catalin Munteanu – FC Brasov
- Banel Nicolita – Steaua Bucharest
My view: Hmm, tough one to call and the surprise of the final analysis, definitely, as Arman Karamyan was known until the second half of last season mainly as the twin brother of Artiom. The move to Steaua and the goals that followed were decisive, but also proved that there wasn’t a consistent player on the left wing., able to deliver and convince during the past championship. Good to see Petre in the top five, I’ve considered him a natural winger with potential since his Unirea Urziceni days, while Dinamo’s Alexe showed a lot of promise and will probably continue to develop into a quality winger indeed.
My choices: Well, seeing Cesinha in his last couple of appearances back to his best, I’d say it’s a shame he’s prone to injuries. Craiova’s Gangioveanu is still a player to watch – maybe he’ll switch clubs or settle down and focus on football -, just like Gaz Metan’s promising winger Paul Parvulescu, who offered some quality performances, but wasn’t always convincing during this season.
Note: the top five is taken from Gazeta Sporturilor, a newspaper that uses the service of Digital Soccer Project. These results are based on a series of specific criteria for each position, include only players that have collected at least 1.200 minutes on the pitch in the past season and the only subjective part of the analysis consists in the average marks received by the newspaper’s writers.
