Emerich Jenei




Having been in the job for four years in the 1980s and watched his predecessor, Victor Piturca, be dismissed despite coaching his team through the qualifiers, Emerich Jenei has returned to his old post knowing that not even success is enough to guarantee your future in Romanian football.

At least Jenei appears to have the backing of the players, which Piturca clearly did not, and he has vast experience to draw on.

Apart from a stint as Romanian coach, a one-year stretch in charge of the Hungarian national side, and a position, between 1997 and 1998, in the Ministry of Sport (where his knowledge of the politics within domestic football doubtless came in handy), he was coach at Steaua Bucharest from 1971.

His first spell in charge of the national team was largely successful and ended after the 1990 World Cup, but his best moment came four years earlier in leading Steaua, where he also spent the bulk of his playing career between 1957 and 1969, to the European Cup.
