    DAN PETRESCU has revealed he wants to take pop superstar Robbie Williams to dinner in the build-up to the crucial Champions League clash with Celtic.

    CFR Cluj boss Petrescu has BANNED his players from attending this weekend’s Untold music festival in the Romanian city.

    Stormzy, David Guetta and Tinie Tempah are at the three-day show for 300,000 party-goers.

    But for Petrescu, the main man is Port Vale fan and crooner Williams.


    The former Chelsea star has Celtic at home on Wednesday but he wants to unwind on Sunday night by taking the Rock DJ singer for dinner after first meeting him during his Blues playing days.

    Petrescu said: “I was at Chelsea and I played against Sheffield Wednesday.

    “We won 3-1 and I scored. After the match I was with my wife Dana at the hotel we saw Robbie and him for an autograph.

    She approached him and asked ‘please” and he said “I’ll give you an autograph if your husband gives me his!


    did and he gave his autograph to my wife.

    “I’ve asked someone to find out if we can go to dinner together. Let’s see if he remembers me.

    “I hope that on Sunday night I will meet him again.

    The concert will end late – maybe in the morning – however on Sunday night I won’t be able to sleep too much thinking about the Celtic match anyway.”

    While Petrescu is eager to meet Williams again, his players have been told the gig is off-limits.

    Petrescu joked: “Whoever goes to Untold will never play at CFR as long as I am a coach.


    Send me pictures if you see anyone there!”

    Cluj face Chindia on Saturday night in the Romanian league before preparing to face the Hoops in the third qualifying round for the Champions league.

    Star man Emmanuel Culio has been ruled out of the European clash after picking up a knock in the last round win over Maccabi Tel Aviv.

    Away leg will definitely be on the tele just not sure which channel.

    Last years 3rd round tie vs AEK was on BT Sport.

    I hope their scouts and manager are as daft as the folk speaking in the media on behalf of them.

    We’ve not played long ball football in about 6 years ffs.

    This midfielder Culio is a big miss for them, supposedly the guy that makes them tick. He scored the penalty in the last round and assisted their other goal in the 2-2 at Tel Aviv.

    I know we have a tricky tie to negotiate first, but if we get by Cluj, will we be seeded?

    If so, will we automatically avoid seeded teams like Ajax and Porto?
    I'm lost on how the seeded/unseeded route for Champions/Non-Champions work.

    Some big teams in all categories mind you.

    1-4 Cluj FT.

    Rested almost their entire team tonight.

    Omrani came on and set up a goal, he seems to be their main threat at left wing. Hopefully big Hatem is fine to play to stick him in row Z.

    Think the 2nd leg at home could be a massive benefit to us.

    End of day if you can’t beat a team of guys with an average age of over 30 and with their key player out over 2 legs you don’t deserve to be in the CL playoff let alone the groups.
