CFR Cluj missed qualifying in Champions League already in the first round, being eliminated by Pyunik Yerevan, but continued its European journey in the preliminary rounds of the Conference League, and Dan Petrescu managed to reach the group with the team.
At the last matches, the supporters from Gruia they called for the resignation of the past coach Chelseaeven if the Transylvanians are in fourth position in the ranking, with 18 points and two matches in the minus.
Dan Petrescu: “I was in the dressing room with world champions, with Desailly, with Vialli!”
“I only played 5 years at Chelsea and everyone called me the King. In Romania, they don’t even give us tickets to see the matches. I also have 20 or so years of coaching, I played 14 years abroad, I was in the dressing room with world champions, with Desailly, with Vialli.
I also won the Cup Winners’ Cup, the FA Cup, I did something too. Just like that, some great TV specialists tell me to resign? At the first defeats I became a bad coach? Wait! I want to be respected. If they are, then I respect them all too. But I am not respected.
If Hagi, who is the King of Romanian football, doesn’t play a match or two… I’m happy if Hagi is in first place because he works. I’m most happy when it’s CFR, then Hagi.”were the words of Dan Petrescu at Orange Sport.
