Romania to terminate Piturca contract
"I asked the board to negotiate with Mr Piturca a mutual termination of the contract, given that our chances to qualify are close to zero and that is putting it politely," Romanian federation (FRF) chief Mircea Sandu told a news conference.
Romania have lost their last two matches in Group Seven against Serbia and Austria and lie fifth in a group also containing France, Lithuania and Faroe Islands.
They are eight points behind group leaders Serbia. Sandu said the FRF board would discuss a possible replacement for Piturca by May 10.
