BUCHAREST - Romania coach Razvan Lucescu
resigned on Saturday just one day after a key victory over
Bosnia revived their 2012 European Championship hopes.
Two goals from Ciprian Marica and one by Adrian Mutu gave
Romania a 3-0 win over Bosnia, placing them third in group D
with eight points from six games behind France and Belarus.
"His (Lucescu's) decision takes immediate effect," the
country's football federation, which has yet to appoint a successor, said in a
Lucescu, 42, a former goalkeeper, coached Rapid Bucharest
for three years, winning two Romanian Cups and reaching the
quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.
In 2007 he opted to move down a division to coach FC Brasov
despite getting offers from clubs in Turkey, Italy and Ukraine
and helped them return to the top flight.
He took over the national team in 2009, replacing Victor
Piturca whose contract was mutually terminated after poor
results in 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
According to sportal.com Lucescu will move
to Rapid Bucharest.
Romania resume their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign against
bottom team Luxembourg in September.
