Petrescu departs Unirea post

Unirea Urziceni, who will face Liverpool in the Europa League in February, have surprisingly parted company with manager Dan Petrescu.

The Romanian champions currently lie second in the domestic league, level on points with leaders CFR Cluj, and narrowly missed out on a place in the last 16 of the Champions League this season.

“We’ll try to see what coaches are available,” said club general manager Mihai Stoica.

“We propose to bring in a technician from abroad.”

Petrescu, 42, earned 95 caps for Romania during a playing career that included a highly successful spell in the Premiership with Sheffield Wednesday and Chelsea amongst others.

His first managerial post was with Rapid Bucuresti, and he has also been in charge at Sportul Studentesc and Wisla Krakow of Poland.
