Anghel lordanescu hates picking of Les Blues

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Anghel lordanescu says if he had the choice, there was not a chance of him picking Les Blues out of all the teams for Romania’s opening encounter, but, now that such has been the programme, he would want to have a positive perspective and see it as an opportunity for Romania to shine in a match which would be viewed in each and every corner of the world.

Iordanescu is drawing the heart from the fact that his team had a goalless draw versus Spain recently and Spain’s playing style resembles to that of France in the sense that they also believe in possession play.

According to Iordanescu, the strong point of Romania is that the organisation of the defence is solid and goals are always tough to come by for the opposition and also, discipline-wise, his players are very good. Whatever strategy is discussed and finalized in the preparations, it is well-remembered and nobody really errs from that too often.

Iordanescu reckons that the match versus Albania; which is going to be the last preliminary-round match for Romania, is crucial because it is scheduled at the end and at that time, various qualification equations would be forming. (more…)

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

The former Chelsea and Juventus striker is currently playing for     ASA Tirgu-Mures in Romania. Mutu is desperate to prove to the Romanian coach that he is still able to play at the highest level and that he deserves a place in the Romanian selection at the Euros.

Adrian Mutu, who last played for Romania in 2013, would be inspired by the comments of current Romania coach, Angel Iordanescu, who said that the 37-year old player might be selected if ever he proved his form in a competitive league. It is for this reason that Adrian Mutu has agreed to join ASA Tirgu-Mures.

Adrian Mutu has played a host of European clubs such as Parma, Chelsea, Juventus, and Fiorentina. He rose to prominence with Parma where he will make 36 appearances for them. He will score 22 goals during that period. His good form in Serie A will attract the interest of other European clubs.

In 2003, he will sign for Chelsea where he will score 4 goals in three matches. But his form will decline as the season progresses and will ultimately lose his place in the starting lineup. (more…)

Juventus have claimed victory in their legal battle with Chelsea

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Juventus have claimed victory in their legal battle with Chelsea over the signing of former Romanian international Adrian Mutu.

The 36-year-old was a high-profile signing for the Premier League club in 2004 when Roman Abramovich had ownership of the club. After initial success at the West London club, Mutu was given a lengthy ban from football after testing positive for cocaine. This subsequently led to his departure from Chelsea on a free transfer after his contract was terminated with immediate effect. This allowedMutu to secure a free transfer to Juventus, but because the Italian club already had their quota of non-European based players full, they had to be sent out to Livorno.

Livorno did not utiliseMutu even for a single game and he returned to Juventus. He played at the Italian outfit for a season before being sold at a profit of € 8 million to Fiorentina. Due to this aspect, Chelsea claimed that Juventus should also contribute a huge sum of money as part of the damages of done byMutu. The club was awarded a hefty compensation fee of £ 15 million by FIFA. However, Juventus challenged this decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which has cancelled the verdict by FIFA with immediate effect. (more…)

Adrian Mutu has said that there is no certainity about his future at the moment. Mutu has been playing for Cesena till now. But, Cesena wasn’t able to save its place in the series A last season. So, it is looking to release some of its players. Mutu said that he might be the one who would be released by the club. He said that he had a meeting with the authorities of Cesena and he is not sure if he would be sold or not.

According to the contract, Cesena has to pay Mutu 1.8 million euros every season. But, if a club is playing in the B series, it would be very difficult for the club to pay that much to a player. So, there is much probability that Mutu would be sold. There have been reports that a lot of teams are showing their interest in Mutu. Clubs such as Sion FC, Besiktas Istanbul and Genoa are willing to have Mutu in their team. However, Mutu said that he will continue practicing with the Cesena team until he gets a new contract.

Before joining Cesena, Mutu used to play for Fiorentina. In 2011, Mutu signed a two year contract with Cesena. In the last season, Mutu played 28 matches for Cesena and scored 8 goals for them. Mutu said that he is looking for such a club where he would get a chance to play some competitive matches. On being asked would he like to play in Italy or overseas, Mutu said that it doesn’t matter whether he gets a chance to play in Italy or somewhere else. But, wherever he would go, he just wants to play some tough football and show his skills. Mutu was the top scorer for Cesena last season. He said that playing for Cesena has been quite enjoyable for him and it’s disappointing that he might have to leave the club.
