The lads from YouTube channel Copa90 were in Bucharest recently to make a short film about the woes of Steaua, the once mighty Romanian football team currently being dragged through the mud by their racist, homophobic owner Gigi Becali (currently serving a prison sentence for corruption). That Steaua actually remain top of what passes for a football league in Romania (Liga 1) tells you all you need to know about the standard.
Steaua have been in the news for various reasons of late, few of them anything to do with football. Last week they were ordered by UEFA to play their next two European games behind closed doors after their fans displayed racist banners at a game against Dynamo Kyiv in December, while their ongoing dispute with the Romanian Ministry of Defence regarding use of the Steaua brand has forced the club to change name: officially, Steaua are now called FCSB.
Anyway, here’s the short yet rather informative Copa90 documentary.
