Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi Becali has the most bizarre reason for his side’s poor form over the past five years.
Steaua Bucharest were the darlings of Romanian football. They won the European Cup back in 1986, the only team from Romania to do so.
They have won their own domestic league 26 times, and the cup on 23 occasions.
However, it has been a baron wilderness in terms of honors in Bucharest since 2015.
They have not won any kind of silverware in five years.
According to the club owner Gigi Becali, there is a very simple reason. It has nothing to do with money, or tactics or really even football.
In an interview reported by Goal, its bizarre but as far a he is concerned the difference between his underperformers and the league leaders CFR Cluj.
“My players are making love with their girlfriends too often, that’s why they aren’t playing football so well lately.”
“Look at Dan Petrescu.”
“CFR players have sex only once a week.”
“They meet with women only once a week.”
“If [Steaua striker] Florinel Coman would have rested too … but he is doing other things.”
Keep it short and sweet!
