Steaua playing on the Ghencea stadium is an increasingly unlikely scenario, sptfm.ro informs. Former head coach Anghel Iordanescu stated on Monday evening that he will not accept Gigi Becali’s offer of becoming Steaua’s general manager unless the team plays its home games on the Ghencea stadium. “I’m not interested in what Gigi Becali is saying; I want Steaua to return to Ghencea irrespective of what I’ll be doing this winter. And I believe that Gigi should have understood this after the fantastic atmosphere seen this evening. Steaua can play on the National but Steaua needs Ghencea, needs its own home,” Iordanescu stated. Nevertheless, the former head coach also stated that he will wait until winter.
Steaua’s financier Gigi Becali cannot give up the money he is winning by playing on the National Arena and states that Steaua will not return to Ghencea. “Why should I return to Ghencea? After all, this is about money too, we earned EUR 300,000 and we paid EUR 30,000 in rent. On Ghencea we were earning EUR 70,000 at most. Isn’t playing here better?” Steaua’s owner asked.
Steaua 0 – Rapid 0
Steaua and Rapid registered a goalless draw in the last game of leg 11, the result favoring Dinamo. The game was tense and the show poor. Although the first half lacked any rough tackles, the second half was marred by serious faults and brawls between players, no fewer than three players being sent off.
