Nuno Claro, impressed by Octavian Popescu. “If he stays in Romania, he will be lost”

Octavian Popescu’s market share has risen to €3m, having bagged 8 goals and 4 assists this season.

Former goalkeeper Nuno Claro (45), a three-time champion with CFR Cluj, believes that Octavian Popescu has enormous potential, just like Cristiano Ronaldo.

In an interview with Digi Sport, the Portuguese recommended Octavian Popescu transfer from FCSB this summer, in order to progress.

“FCSB has three players who can be decisive: Popescu, Tănase and Olaru. For me, it’s a shame that Octavian Popescu is still in Romania. He is the most talented player, he has a different profile from other players .

If he stays here another year, two years, he will be lost, it will be a lost talent. Popescu is like Cristiano Ronaldo when he started out. Physically, everything. We have to work on it now. He is a player with a bright future ahead of him. He must go to another championship, where he can also develop his physique. I have never seen a player like him in Romania”said Nuno Claro, for Digi Sport.

  • Nuno Claro came to Romania in 2007, to CFR Cluj, a team he stayed with until 2013. The goalkeeper won three titles (2008, 2010, 2012), three Cups (2008, 2009, 2010) and two Super Cups (2009, 2010).
