This super-fast right winger made his debut in Liga II as a 17-year old and quickly went into the Poli first team. After their promotion to Liga 1, he was already a star on the team. In the first round of the new season, Poli played giants Dinamo Bucarest and Cristian scored a beautiful goal in the 63rd minute after a fantastic run. Thanks to that goal, his team beat the favourites 2-0. He made his name known throughout all of Romania and already there are experts claiming that he is the biggest talent in that league since Gabriel Torje. Despite just 18 years of age, he has become Romania’s U-21s and the senior national team’s biggest hope.
“He has pretty good technique and if he will continues to develop his skills, we will have new Torje at Timisoara”.
(Gheorghe Chivorchian – former Politehnica Timisoara president)
