Even today he scores in the league, and is subbed at 78 minute. If you've got a 6m euro player, he should be able to play 90 minutes every match. Imagine a Romanian club paid 6M for a player and he could only play 60 minutes without being fatigued or gassed? We'd destroy him on the forum. Why are Romanian players any different?
I agree that I exageratted a bit with Cristea reference, but it's hard to not see his career plateauing until he develops some sort of high gear and work ethic. Maybe that's the main difference between him and Mitrita. Mitri can actually work hard, even though he's a midget and injury prone.
Stanciu arrived at the team recently after months of inactivity. The coach said last week that he is not at 100%, and yet he started. I don't think he's had problems playing 90 minutes troughout his career. But clearly there is a problem cause a player of his talent should be in a top 5 league. Luckily he left Arabia, let's see if he can recover
