Rapid breaks the rules. So what?

    FC Vaslui informed the Professional Football League (LPF) that three of its players, who are still under contract, have been missing from training in the past few weeks. LPF took note of the suspension dictated by the club against Neven Markovici (23, left back), Hristijan Kirovski (24, striker) and Marko Ljubinkovici (28, attacking midfielder). Interesting enough, all of them looked very promising at some point (Kirovski scored a brace in his first game for Vaslui, coming on as a sub in the 80th minute!, while Ljubinkovic was outstanding two seasons ago, scoring 16 goals playing in midfield!), but recently fell out of favor, reacting badly to the increased competition for a place in the first team.

  • In spite of FC Timisoara’s threats, the contracts of Dacian Varga and Tiberiu Balan were registered with the Romanian Professional League, who, once again, closed its eyes as Rapid dribbled past the current rules. The fact is that the Bucharest club “shopped” outside the transfer window and this is just another example of how the big guys are allowed to break the rules. The problem is that FC Timisoara will refuse to go all the way and get UEFA‘s attention on this matter, as, in the future, they could use such a precedent themselves ;-).

Stanciu starts delivering for FC Timisoara

March 5, 2010 Leave a comment

Recently “retired”, the former FIFA agent Daniel Stanciu has already given signs of how important his connections and knowledge could prove for FC Timisoara. Hired in the sporting director position, Stanciu took advantage of the Romania – Israel friendly to convince Omer Golan (27) to join the Viola club in the summer. Golan was in the last six months of his current deal with Lokeren and, after talks with Timisoara’s board and even a trip to see the beautiful city, confirmed that he will be joining the Romanian club at the end of the season. Golan, who was a target for Steaua a couple of years ago, has 36 caps and 9 goals for Israel and spent the last two and a half seasons in Belgium, where he scored 11 goals in 56 appearance.
