Lauren?iu Dumitru Ro?u (born 26 October 1975) is a Romanian retired footballer who played as either a forward or winger, and is a manager.

After four seasons at Steaua Bucure?ti, he spent nine years as a professional in Spain - eight in the two major divisions, where he amassed totals of 222 games and 45 goals - representing three clubs, mostly Numancia and Recreativo.

Ro?u earned nearly 40 caps for Romania, representing the nation at Euro 2000.

Club career

Born in Ia?i, Ro?u started playing football with local FC Politehnica. Not yet 18, he moved to country giants FC Steaua Bucure?ti where he would spend the following seven years, winning five Liga I championships.

In his first season, Ro?u only featured in four league matches, but after his direct competitor was sold he blossomed into a top-flight player, scoring six goals in 31 games in the 1994-95 campaign and adding a combined 27 in his last two as the team finished third on both occasions. Previously, in 1997-98, as Steaua again lifted the league trophy (with three goals from the player), it became the first club in the country after World War II to conquer the national title for six consecutive years.

With Ro?u on board, Steaua became the first Romanian side to reach the UEFA Champions League group stage phase, in the 1994-95 edition, and he left in 2000 with 159 matches played in the first division, all with the same team. He also won three Romanian Cups, adding 43 appearances and four goals in European competition.

Ro?u moved to CD Numancia for 2000-01, joining compatriot Constantin Barbu who had arrived the previous season.[2] In his first year in Spain he scored eight times[3]- including a hat-trick against Real Madrid[4]- but the Sorians were relegated from La Liga. After a further three years, all in the second level,[3] he signed for Recreativo de Huelva, scoring 19 goals in his first two seasons including ten in 2005-06 as the Andalusians returned to the top division after a three-year absence.[5][6]

After managing to score only three times in 2006-07 and appear in four matches in the following season, Ro?u moved to neighbours Cádiz CF, recently relegated to the third level.[7] He was released after a sole campaign, having contributed sparingly to their immediate promotion.

On 25 March 2008, Ro?u was decorated by the president of Romania, Traian B?sescu, for having qualified to Euro 2008 with "Medalia Meritul Sportiv" -- (the "Sportive Merit" medal) class III. He started a managerial career in 2010, notably working as an assistant with FC Vaslui and FC Petrolul Ploie?ti.[8][9]

For 2016-17, Ro?u was appointed head coach of Liga II's FC UTA Arad.[10]The following season, he was in charge of CS Mioveni of the same league.[11]

International career

Ro?u made his debut for the Romania national team on 10 October 1998 against Portugal, in an UEFA Euro 2000 qualifier (1-0 away win), and represented his country at the tournament's final stages. He went on to play 38 internationals and score five goals, including one against Bulgaria in a 2-2 home draw for the Euro 2008 qualifying phase, on 2 September 2006.[12]
