Dănuț Lupu (born February 27, 1967 in Galați , Romania ) is a former Romanian football player . He completed a total of 309 games in the Divizia A , the Alpha Ethniki and the Serie A . He also took part in the 1990 World Cup.


Dănuţ Lupu began his career in his hometown of Galati at Dunărea Galaţi in the second Romanian football league, the Divizia B . In the winter break of 1986/87 he had the opportunity to move to the Romanian top club Dinamo Bucharest . There he reached after three runners-up in the 1989/90 season, winning the Romanian championship and the Romanian Cup and the semi-finals in the European Cup Winners' Cup . Lupu then moved - like many other Romanian national players - after the World Cup in 1990 abroad and joined the Greek top club Panathinaikos Athens . There he was not used regularly, but still won the Greek championship and the Greek cup. To get more stakes Lupu switched to league rivals FC Korinthos . There he became a regular again, but also rose from the Alpha Ethniki in 1993 .

In 1993 Lupu moved to OFI Crete , but returned to Rapid Bucharest in Romania during the season . At the end of a messed up season with few appearances, Lupu dared to take the step abroad again in 1994 and moved to Brescia Calcio , where several Romanian national players were already under contract. But already during the winter break he returned to Rapid Bucharest, where he played a successful second half and then moved to Dinamo Bucharest. After Lupu had found back to old strength, he moved to Rapid Bucharest for the third time in 1997 and won his second Romanian championship title in 1999. In 2000 he left Rapid and ended his career after two unfortunate positions at Dinamo Bucharest and Hapoel Zafririm Cholon in Israel, where he was rarely used.

National team

Lupu played a total of 14 international matches for the Romanian national soccer team . He was not part of the squad throughout, but played his games over nine years. He played his first game on October 11, 1989 against Denmark . In 1990 Emerich Jenei appointed him to the squad for the 1990 World Cup , where he was used twice. After he was hardly used at his new club Panathinaikos Athens, no further internationals followed. It was not until 1995 and 1999 that individual assignments were added.
