Steaua Bucharest appoint Munteanu as new coach

BUCHAREST, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Steaua Bucharest appointed former Romania international Dorinel Munteanu as their new coach on Monday, replacing Marius Lacatus who resigned last week after their Champions League defeat by Olympique Lyon.

Club officials said Munteanu's contract was for two years and was worth 180,000 euros ($224,000) per year.

"I decided to join Steaua as I'm convinced that the team has great potential," the 40-year-old Munteanu told reporters.

"It's a big challenge for me and I'm honoured to have been chosen."

Steaua, who are fourth in the domestic championship, will travel to Olympique Lyon next week hoping to improve on the one point they have notched so far in Champions League Group F.

Munteanu becomes Steaua's eighth coach in the past four years.

Previous coaches including Victor Piturca, Cosmin Olaroiu, Oleg Protasov, Walter Zenga, Gheorghe Hagi left after rows with owner Gigi Becali, whom they accused of interfering with their coaching work.

"I will intervene if Steaua has problems," Becali was quoted as saying by Fanatik TV. "If he (Munteanu) has (good) results, he remains (Steaua coach) if not, I'll fire him immediately."

Former midfielder Munteanu, who scored 16 goals in 134 matches for Romania, has coached local clubs CFR Cluj, Vaslui, Arges Pitesti and Universitatea Cluj.
