League I: Unirea Urziceni refuses to die

After surprisingly defeating Steaua several legs ago, Unirea Urziceni repeated the performance in the last game of leg 9, this time against Dinamo, score 1-0. The surprise is so much the greater as it is well known that financial reasons have recently forced Urziceni to give up almost all of its important players, replacing them with players from Steaua’s second team.


Dinamo found the result hard to swallow, head coach Ioan Andone’s statement being eloquent in that regard. “This was the greatest embarrassment I’ve experienced since I’ve started coaching Dinamo,” the head coach stated for HotNews.


“I apologize to the fans that came here from Bucharest; it is the greatest embarrassment I could have caused them. This was the greatest embarrassment I’ve experienced since I’ve started coaching Dinamo. I didn’t expect to lose in Urziceni. It was the poorest game since I came to Dinamo. My players treated the game as if victory was a foregone conclusion. Let’s see what measures the leadership will take now. Urziceni defeated Steaua at home; it’s a team that has a strong character and deserves to be congratulated,” Ioan Andone stated.


“Dinamo is a team that doesn’t manage to play much; it was a rudderless struggle. This total disorientation in game consistency… I’m sure this wasn’t what the training consisted of. I am convinced the head coach has no fault for the total chaos on the pitch. Limits are probably reached; CVs are probably more impressive than what is shown on the pitch. It’s a crisis; I’ll probably talk to Andone and see what measures to take in order to resuscitate this team,” Di­namo President Nicolae Ba­dea stated for DigiSport. In ano­ther leg 9 game, Univer­sitatea Cra­iova won its first away game under head coach Victor Pi­turca’s leadership, score 4-1 against FC Targu Mures.
