Andone wants three players from CSKA!

Ioan Andone

Recently appointed in charge of Dinamo, after a short spell with Rapid, in the second half of last season, Ioan Andone is looking to buy at least one of the following players from CSKA Sofia: Pavel Vidanov (central defender, 21), Aleksandr Branokov (central defender, 22), Zdravko Shavdarov (goalkeeper, 29). Dinamo is counting on Ioan Becali’s influence at the Bulgarian club and is also contemplating a swap, being ready to send to CSKA the talented , but always inconsistent Ianis Zicu (attacking midfielder, 26), once an Inter Milano player!

Pancu, close to a return to Rapid

April 23, 2010 3 comments
  • FIFA agent Victor Becali has planned a trip to Bulgaria, in order to talk with CSKA’s board and release Daniel Pancu of his current deal. Pancu had moved to Sofia during the winter break, following Ioan Andone, but, in spite of some decent performances, fell out of favor with the new coach, with the angry fans and didn’t get paid in the last couple of months, so he decided to leave the club. Currently training (which isn’t ok, is it?) with Rapid, Pancu stated that he would agree a return to Rapid, after solving an old conflict with the club’s owner, George Copos. A good move for Rapid if all goes well, as this is also a step made by Copos to keep coach Ioan Andone at the club at least for another season.
  • The dismissal of Italian coach Nicolo Napoli was followed by a similar episode to the one that made Dinamo keep the headlines in the past week. Four players (all bought this winter, at Napoli’s demand) refused to make the trip to Ceahlaul, for a game that could be vital for Astra’s future in the Liga I. Marcelo Mendez, Diego Silva, Danilo Carando and Gonzalo Salgueiro are now on the black list and could have the same faith as Alejandro Kruchowsky and Maximiliano Arias, the two defenders who were already released, after a string of poor performances.

Daniel Gabriel Pancu (32) moves to Bulgaria and signed a contract with CSKA until June 2011. The versatile and experienced attacking midfielder spent the last year and a half at Terek, in Russia, where he scored 10 goals in 33 appearances. Pancu rejoins former team-mate from Terek Florentin Petre (33) and hopes to win the title with his new club.
