Dorinel Ionel Munteanu (Romanian pronunciation: [dori'nel mun'te?anu]; born 25 June 1968) is a Romanian retired professional footballer and manager.[5]

A former midfielder, Munteanu is the most capped Romanian player of all time, with a total of 134 appearances and 16 goals.[6] He played in two editions of the World Cup, those held in the United States in 1994 and France in 1998, as well as two European Championships, in 1996 and 2000.[6]

Club career

Munteanu was born in Gr?dinari. He started his football career playing for Metalul Boc?a, a team which offered him the first chance to play in Divizia B in 1986. After a year he went to play for FCM Re?i?a and then in 1988 for Olt Scornice?ti, while 1989 found him at Inter Sibiu.

Dinamo Bucharest bought him from FC Inter Sibiu in 1991 only to sell him to Cercle Brugge two years later. After two years in Belgium, he moved to Germany to play for 1. FC Köln and VfL Wolfsburg until 2003.

In 2003, aged 35, he was released from his contract by VfL Wolfsburg and signed with Steaua Bucure?ti as a free agent, only to leave the club in 2005 after a conflict with the club's Chief Executive Mihai Stoica and join the squad of CFR Cluj Napoca.

International career

Dorinel won his first cap for Romania in 1991 while still at Inter Sibiu.[6] Since then he was a very important part of the national team of Romania, playing in various positions such as left back, left midfielder and playmaker.

In 2001, he won his 100th cap in a game against Slovenia in Ljubljana and four years later he won the 126th cap, making him the most capped Romanian footballer.[6] He has a total of 134 caps.[6]

Munteanu scored 16 goals for Romania and played at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 1996, 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000.[6]

Coaching career

After leaving Steaua Bucure?ti, Munteanu is offered the position of player-manager at CFR Cluj. In this first managerial job, he took the team to the Intertoto Cup final in 2005 and finished fifth in Divizia A at the end of the 2005-06 season. During the first half of the 2006-07 season, despite a good start (six wins, two draws, two defeats) with CFR Cluj, Munteanu announced he resigns his position at the club, due to interference with his decisions and lack of support from the club management. Munteanu had a pending offer from Arge? Pite?ti and he decided to accept it, despite the team being bottom of the first league after 10 games. Towards the end of the season, due to impossibility of avoiding the relegation of Arge? Pite?ti, he was sacked, only to be confirmed in short time as the new manager of Liga 1 team FC Vaslui. He has stated that he also intends to continue his playing career at FC Vaslui. He came back as head coach of Universitatea Cluj in September 2008, but only after seven games he quit to go to Steaua Bucure?ti.[1][7] And again, after only eight games, he was dismissed by the club's president, Gigi Becali and returned to Universitatea Cluj.[8]

After the short spell at Universitatea Cluj, in July 2009 he signed a contract with O?elul Gala?i. In the first season under his command, the team finished eighth. The next season, O?elul started the season with four wins in the first six games and climbed on top of the championship. They finished first the Autumn part of the season, and what seemed to be only a flash in the pan, became one of the biggest surprises in the Romanian football. O?elul maintained its position throughout the Spring season and became Romanian champion for the first time in their history. Munteanu was seen as the primary factor for this success.[9]

The following season, under Munteanu's guidance, O?elul took part in the UEFA Champions League group stage, but failed to gain a single point. In the championship, O?elul finished sixth and didn't qualify for the European competitions.

The 2012-13 season started badly for O?elul who won the game in the first round, against Politehnica Ia?i, but then registered five consecutive games without a win. As a consequence, Dorinel Munteanu resigned.

In November 2012, he was installed as a head coach at Dinamo Bucure?ti.[10][11] After only one month and four games in charge at Dinamo, Munteanu resigned at the end of 2012, citing the wish to follow his dream to coach abroad.[12] Just a day later, on 28 December 2012, Munteanu signed a contract for one and a half years with Mordovia Saransk.[13] On 1 August 2013, he took charge of Russian side Kuban Krasnodar,[14] before being sacked on 12 October of the same year. On 14 June 2014, Munteanu was appointed as manager of Gabala FK.[15] Munteanu was relieved of his duties as manager on 8 December 2014, following four wins in sixteen matches.[16]
