Round 22 – match highlights

March 18, 2010 Leave a comment
  • FC Brasov – International Curtea de Arges 1-2 (Zaharia 11 / E. Kone 29, Bacila 81)

Fantastic victory for International, the first under Ionut Badea, “transferred” during the winter break from the relegated FC Arges, who are undefeated for three matches and starting to hope again in their chances of survival. Excellent game from the talented wide midfielder Emmanuel Kone (23), who’s a natural right winger, but capped a solid performance on the left side with a deserved secod goal of the season. Kone is currently on loan from CFR Cluj and, surprisingly, CFR misses at this point a wide midfielder on the right of his quality. Surprisingly, the Ivorian’s athleticism was perfect on a pitch covered in snow, a sign that he has fully adjusted to the rather difficult playing conditions from Romania. Brasov is really struggling this year and basically lost any chance to catch a European spot, which is a pitty, thinking of the good displays from the first half of season.

  • Pandurii Targu Jiu – Ceahlaul 0-0

This is the third consecutive draw for Filipovic and, although a valuable one, against another team in a difficult situation, Ceahlaul will struggle to produce the needed wins, with such a defensive attitude. The hosts showed once again their limits in attack and this was the last match with Liviu Ciobotariu on the bench, who was immediately replaced by former Pandurii coach Sorin Cartu, also known as “Sorinaccio” for his defensive style, which brought the best out of this ugly team in the past. A second good performance from keeper Razvan Stanca, who was outstanding in the previous round, away at International, producing several saves, including a penalty kick. Read more…

Wesley gets a wage cut instead of a raise

  • Brazilian forward Wesley Da Silva Lopez loses 25% of his current wage and will be sent to FC Vaslui’s reserve team, for an undefined period of time. This is the punishment announced today by the club’s board, angry that the club’s best player of the season refused to play in the first official game of the year, against Gaz Metan Medias. Wesley (29) was upset that FC Vaslui refused to negotiate at least an offer of 2 mil. EUR from Al-Wasl and had demanded a wage rise to continue playing for Adrian Porumboiu’s club. FC Vaslui motivated its choice by saying that the offer was presented by an agent and that Al-Wasl denied interest in the player when questionned on the subject, but stated that the Brazilian is now up for sale, in case a concrete and decent offer comes along.
  • Steaua finally got his man, as Gora Tall (24) arrived in Romania last night, completing the loan from APOP/Kyniras. The Senegalese central defender has big chances to gain a place in the first eleven right away, as Steaua is looking for a quick replacement for Eugen Baciu, who got the axe, after making obscene gestures towards the fans during the 3-1 loss against Ceahlaul.
  • Portuguese full back Rui Duarte (29) returned to FC Brasov, one and a half months later than he was supposed to. With talks about his chances to return to the squad in a short while, there is unrest among his team-mates, especially given his atitude, as he behaved like nothing had happened and didn’t even explained or appologize in the locker.  With Steaua still very interested in his services, in spite of his obvious lack of professionalism, Rui Duarte probably hopes that the board will agree to release him while they can still get a good price for him.
