Romania’s new coach, Razvan Lucescu declared that the purpose of his visit to Italy, where he met the international players Cristian Chivu and Adrian Mutu, was a lucrative one, based on the intention to present his ideas to the players,” the website sport.ro announced.
“It is not a vacation, but a work visit. It was a weekend filled with action. I have met Mutu and Chivu, and all the players I could catch. I did not want them to congratulate me; I wanted to check their mood. But they are not the only ones I wanted to meet. It is important that all the persons who discussed with me are highly motivated. We discussed what will follow, and what we could do. I tried to make them accept me as a person, as a coach, to explain my ideas to them. It is important that we could get to know each other better before the first game,” Lucescu declared after returning to Romania.
The coach of the team FC Brasov, Razvan Lucescu was appointed coach of the national team of Romania by the end of April, after the members of the Executive Committee of the Romanian Football Federation (FRF) approved the proposal submitted by Ionut Lupescu, the General Manager of FRF.
