Mihai Stoichiţă (born 10 May 1954) is a Romanian football manager who last coached Liga I side Petrolul Ploiești.

Coaching career

The Kuwait Football Association hired him in 2006 to coach its national football team. Stoichiţă's first task is to earn one point from the away match at Uzbekistan to qualify for a two-legged play-off against Bahrain in the World Cup Qualifiers.

On 18 September 2009, two hours after Cristiano Bergodi was sacked, he was announced by Steaua Bucureşti's owner, Gigi Becali, as the new manager of the team. He resigned in May 2010, after finishing the 2009-10 season on the fourth position. In June 2010, Stoichiţă joined Astra Ploieşti but was sacked after only a couple of months due to poor results. He returned to Cyprus, for a second spell at AEL Limassol.

In September 2011, Stoichiţă returned to Romania to help newly promoted CS Mioveni in their attempt to avoid relegation. But an offer from Apollon Limassol made him move back to Cyprus. At the beginning of March 2012, he ended his contract and returned to Romania. On 27 March 2012, he returned to Steaua, signing a contract until the end of the season. His contract wasn't renewed because he failed to win the title with Steaua.
