Adrian Mutu has vowed to rebuild his career after being handed a seven-month ban for failing a drugs test.
Former Chelsea star Mutu was suspended by the Football Association after a positive sample for a recreational drug, believed to be cocaine.
Professional Footballers Association chief executive Gordon Taylor offered the 25-year-old his support.
"He's now looking forward to getting his career back on track in top-class football after next May," said Taylor.
"He wants to restore his good name in the international football world and particularly in Romania."
Mutu was also fined £20,000, and his ban finishes after the end of the domestic season on 18 May.
This, in theory, could make him available for Romania's World Cup qualifiers against Holland on 4 June and Armenia on 8 June.

Mutu's representative Gica Popescu told BBC Radio Five Live: "Adrian's reaction is very positive. He is happy the FA understood his situation and he is now looking forward to coming back stronger than he ever was.
"It has been a very difficult period for Adrian. He realises he made a big mistake, but his biggest mistake was not asking for any help.
"He is 100% ready for his rehabilitation programme. He's going to be stronger than before. He was very upset and confused, but now he's ok."
Mutu's former Chelsea team-mate Claude Makelele admitted he now faces a difficult time.
He said: "He is a good man and for him not to play football will be very difficult.
"He is a good player and a good striker, but to come back into football will be very tough for him."
