Razvan Rat

Name: Razvan Rat
Current Club: Rapid Bucharest
Date of Birth: June 26, 1981
Position: Midfielder
Website: Pagina Oficiala F.C. RAPID
Comment: A very talented and promising young player. Although he is a regular of the U-21 team, he has yet to earn a regular place in the starting lineup of Rapid where he has to compete against players like Ovidiu Sabau and Danut Lupu. The former coach of Rapid Bucharest Mircea Lucescu used the youngster towards the end of the 1999 - 2000 season in a multitude of positions in both defense and midfield, and it is not yet certain where he will fit best. The new coach, Anghel Iordanescu, has said that there will be some changes in the team's squad before the start of the season, and although he has not yet named specific players he intends to transfer, it is likely that Razvan will continue with the club. Even before he moved to Rapid Rat was very close to a move to Ajax Amsterdam, but his former club and the Dutch failed to agree on the proper transfer fee. A while back he declared that he somewhat the bitter the deal did not go through, but pledged to do his at Rapid and progress from there. Recently he has earned several caps in the U 21 national team, and it seems like the coach is pleased with him.
