FC National Bucuresti have reappointed Cosmin Olaroiu as coach in succession to Walter Zenga, who has a new role at the Romanian club.

New roles
Former Italian international Zenga has moved upstairs to become technical director, co-ordinating the youth scheme as well as supporting Olaroiu, who will also continue to act as general manager.
