New team-mates
The 28-year-old Ogăraru left Steaua for Ajax two years ago but has now returned to the club where he started his career, having played in 44 league games for the Amsterdam side over the last two seasons. Ogăraru scored three league goals in 107 games for Steaua during his first spell at the club, and also spent time on loan with CSM Reşiţa and CF Otelul Galati. Among his new team-mates in Bucharest will be 29-year-oldl Semedo, the former CF Estrela da Amadora forward who scored 13 goals in 67 league games for CFR 1907 Cluj, helping them win the title in 2007/08. He has been handed the No9 shirt vacated by Valentin Badea, who has joined Greek side Panserraikos FC on a season-long loan.
