Ciprian Marica thinks about retirement. Stuttgart’s fans have no reason to celebrate: it’s about the national team


(In)famous agents Ioan and Victor Becali decided to change tactics before the game in France, refusing to comment regarding the national team and especially its coach, Razvan Lucescu. They knew that Mircea’s son had little chances to come out with a win, so “Le Bleus” were going to give them a hand in changing this stubborn coach, who refuses to acknowledge their influence and picks his team on his own.

Marica is too good to sit on the bench. And wants out, not in!

It was one of their clients who spoiled this decent plan, as Ciprian Marica needed just a couple of training sessions to realize that he was going to start the match on the bench, in spite of his outstanding scoring record of one goal in almost 800 minutes played for the national team, under Lucescu Jr. On Friday, Victor Becali appeared on tv and spoke about his client’s thoughts to stop playing for Romania. Marica himself refused to use these words, but stated his discontent, saying that “The coach favors other players”, still hoping that this kind of pressure might change Lucescu’s plans. It didn’t, but the young coach showed enough diplomacy to send Marica on the pitch in the second half.

The cameras focused on the sidelines and showed that this was not enough for VFB Stuttgart’s scoring machine: an agitated Lucescu – who was using large gestures to explain what he wants and point out where he should move on the pitch – was less than a meter away from an absent Marica, who was rarely looking at the coach, didn’t follow his gestures and probably didn’t even listen to what he was told. He went on the pitch for what should be the last thirty minutes played for the national team, but left the whole issue in limbo, refusing to speak about his future and the relationship with Razvan Lucescu. He did very well. It’s now up to his agents to solve this problem. They do have to work for their money, don’t they?
