Alexandru Moldovan (born 23 August 1950 in Ocna Mureș) is a Romanian football manager and former midfielder.[1]


Playing career

Moldovan played for Dinamo Bucharest, Crişul Oradea, Jiul Petroșani, Progresul Bucureşti, Victoria București, Metallurgistul Cugir and Unirea Alba Iulia from 1970 and 1985 until his retirement.

During his playing career Moldovan won four League titles in eight years with Dinamo Bucharest.[2]

Coaching career

Moldovan coached a number of teams in his native Romania, including most notably Dinamo Bucharest in the 1992–93 season.[3] His side lost 2–0 on aggregate to eventual winners Olympique de Marseille in the second round qualifiers for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League in 1993.[4] In the same year he left Romania to coach clubs in Kuwait, Tunisia,[5] Morocco,[6] Algeria,[7] Bahrain,[8] Saudi Arabia and Egypt.[9]

Moldovan had three successful spells as manager of Raja Casablanca. During his first era in charge, Raja won the Moroccan league title in 1997. In his second stint Raja had surprisingly sacked him in the 2001–02 season when they were seven points clear in the standings but officials felt the team were not playing attractive football and Raja ended up third after replacing him.[10] During his third spell at the club Moldovan won the Coupe du Trône and led the Moroccan side to the semifinals of the CAF Champions League in 2005 losing 2–0 on aggregate against Tunisian side Étoile du Sahel.[11] Moldovan was fired and replaced by Oscar Fulloné in December 2005.[12]
