Best players in Romania: right midfielders

  1. Mihai Roman, 26 years old

    MIHAI ROMAN – FC Brasov

  2. Gabriel Torje – Dinamo Bucharest
  3. Janos Szekely – Steaua Bucharest
  4. Antonio Semedo – Unirea Urziceni
  5. Liviu Antal – Otelul Galati

My view: Fair results, given the fact that, of all Romanian players on this position, Roman established himself as the first choice for the national team from Liga I, but it would have made sense to see this analysis including some stats regarding the players’ crossing ability. He’s the best when it comes to taking out his direct opponent and has the best shooting accuracy and these two criteria pretty much describe him as a player. Nice to see Antal grabbing the fifth spot, another second division player selected by the expert Marius Stan, a president with an excellent eye for promising footballers.

My choices: CFR’s first serious buy of the summer, Hora, was only in eighth place, in spite of a good season, but I would mention Gaz Metan’s Alexandru Muntean, as a nice prospect, and International’s experienced utility player Cosmin Bacila, who produced an impressive scoring rate in the second half of the season, which was definitely useful to the club’s survival in the league.

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.

Inter’s topscorer is a 27 years old from Romania

Cosmin Bacila

First of all, let me say “I’m sorry” to all those who thought “What? Milito is Romanian?”. I’m talking about International Curtea de Arges and Cosmin Bacila, the right back reinvented as a midfielder/winger, who just scored his fifth goal of the season for a team that will fight for survival until the very last round. Bacila made a late debut in the first division, playing mainly as right back for Farul Constanta, a team he left last summer to join the newly promoted International. The hard-working type of player, useful in both phases of the game, the 27 years old feels so good in a 4-1-4-1 system that he managed to become the club’s top scorer, with the four goals scored in the second half of the season. Let me just write down some of the players who have scored five goals this season: Bogdan Stancu (striker, Steaua), Yssouf Kone (striker, CFR Cluj), Lacina Traore (striker, CFR Cluj), Mike Temwanjera (striker, FC Vaslui), Lucian Raduta (striker, Rapid).

Now, I’m not saying that Bacila is a top class footballer, but maybe we should think twice before we talk about the millions Steaua, CFR, Rapid or FC Vaslui ask for their “star players”…
