Is Chivu retiring?


Asked about his future at the national team after the failure with Serbia, Cristi Chivu (Inter Milano) avoided to give a firm answer, but hinted that he is also considering retiring. “I really don’t want to speak, because I will regret later. If I speak now, I will make a hasty decision and I don’t feel like that. I may regret tomorrow, the day after tomorrow,” Cristi Chivu said on sport.ro. The agent of the player from Internazionale Milano, Giovanni Becali, confirmed this hypothesis. “Chivu was one second away from renouncing the national team after this match,” Giovanni stressed. Cristi Chivu gathered 68 selections in the national team in the last ten years, scoring three times.


A small… victory


After the failure from Latvia, the national U21 football team defeated Faroe Islands by 3-0, still having chances to qualify. The Romanians opened the sore in minute 5, when Bickfalvi sent a strong hit from 25 m. Minute 38 brought the increase of the score. Ionita and Ganea checkmated Faroe’s defence, and the latter executed Jorgensen with a shot into the long corner. After the break, Ionescu closed the score board by a ball which hit the bar before getting into the net. “I am satisfied with the result, but less with the game. The Faroese have created many occasions for themselves,” said FRF general manager, Ionut Lupescu, present at the match. Romania is on the first place in the standings of the group, with 15 points, followed by Russia with 12 points.


Andone – not coming to Dinamo


Coach Ioan Andone declared that the officials of Al-Ahli club, where he coaches now, transmitted him that he must observe the contract signed in summer with the Arab team, so his return on the technical bench of Dinamo is not possible. “I met with Al-Ahli president, who told me clearly that I must observe the contract. I told also Dinamo managers that I cannot come, it’s useless to say that I am sorry, the understanding is signed by me and there is nothing to do. I don’t know if I can come next year to Dinamo, I have a contract with Al-Ahli until May 15, and I don’t know which will be the situation until then,” Andone said.
