Mircea Sandu

Nationality: Romanian
Date of Birth: 22 October 1952
Association president since: 1990

• Scoring six goals in 18 international games for Romania, striker Mircea Sandu spent much of his playing career with FC Sportul Studenţesc Bucureşti, finally retiring in 1987 after a spell at FC Gloria Buzău. In total, he scored 167 times in 408 league games.

• Sandu has overseen the building of a new training centre at Mogosoaia and the construction of the new FRF headquarters, but has said: "Football does not belong to us, it belongs to the people. Football gave me everything and it's our duty to give it our dedicated efforts. We work for football and the people; we have to be true to this wonderful sport."
