  • Steaua’s centre-forward Pantelis Kapetanos (26) has earned his first call up to the Greek national team, for the friendly against Senegal, scheduled on the 3rd of March. Not the most eye-catching forward in the league, Kapetanos impressed in the first half of season and proved a vital player and a clinical finisher for Steaua, scoring 9 goals in 11 starts for the red and blue outfit.
  • Not 100% fit after his back injury that forced him to lose completely the first half of season in Romania, FC Timisoara’s centre forward Dejan Rusic (27) missed out on a transfer to Olimpija Ljubljana.
  • Joao Paulo Pinto Ribeiro (29) has been declared a free player by the Professional League and the striker who had a terrible scoring record at Rapid (3 goals in 40 matches!) is free to sign with Leixoes.
  • Steaua Bucharest presents Florentin Matei (17) as one of the club’s hottest prospects. Club owner Gigi Becali says that the kid has a bright future at the Bucharest club, but, at this age, the skilled attacking midfielder isn’t getting any space to accelerate his development, not even in Steaua’s reserve team, which is playing in the Romanian second division…

Two Slovenian players on the move

FC Timisoara announced the release of Dejan Rusic (27). The powerful striker came to Romania in 2008 and scored 9 goals in 42 appearances in the league. Seriously injured, never played this season for Timisoara and during 2009 has never featured in the team’s first eleven!
The other Slovenian player from Timisoara, Dare Vrsic (25), has been granted a move on loan back to his country, if he finds an interested club. The attacking midfielder showed some promise, but proved quite prone to injuries. In fact, in two and a half seasons collected only 22 games in the league. His contract with Timisoara runs until June 2012 and the Romanian club probably hopes to have him back to full match fitness at the end of this loan spell.
