Petrescu: ‘I’m quitting Cluj after Roma’

Roma’s Europa League opponents CFR Cluj are in chaos, as coach Dan Petrescu reportedly said he was going to resign straight after the game.

According to, Petrescu – who is suspended for tomorrow’s match and will be in the stands – is ready to walk away.

“I don’t want to remain, so I am leaving after the game with Roma,” Petrescu is reported to have said.

“I want a break, I can’t take it anymore. It’s not just about the referees. Someone else will arrive, I need a rest. I can’t train here anymore, what more can I do?”

The 52-year-old is in his second career spell with Cluj, having already led them in the 2017-18 season.

He returned in March 2019 and had started this Europa League campaign brightly, winning 2-0 away to CSKA Sofia and drawing 1-1 with Young Boys.
