I just read that hes parents are both Greek but they left for Romania in 1949 From Greece to escape the civil war.Both his parents hold a Greek passport still,but he had a romanian passport and generally ''Felt Romanian not Greek''

Anybody got more info?

I've heard one story or two, but I don't think so. He may have a Greek sounding name (bear in mind that there's plenty of them in Romania current Xanthi coach Mantouranis is one example)but Given what he's been up to in recent years, I think he feels more Turkish.

He almost came to PAO instead of Gala...

what a combination that would have been, Hagi - Borelli - Warzycha -- we would have won in 96

He is a Vlach (Aroman).

They are people whose language is related to Romanian, hence the move to Romania.

Hagi is about as greek as Juan Ramon Rocha is :nono:
Bak ib the 80's Vardinoyinnais tried to bring to PAO the Argentine Juan Ramon Rocha under the pseudonym Boublis trying to pass him off as a Greek. This scam was exposed ofcourse and we al know now that Rocha came to PAO had hada successfull caeer.
Vardinoyiannis tried to do the same with Hagi, he tried to bring him to PAO as a Greek Giorgos Xatzis.

Lool, we know such affairs in Turkey too, with French International player Didier Six playing with the name Dündar Siz in Galatasaray in 1987. :pp

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

You mean the president who treats his own players like dirt?

Much like the rest presidents of the Greek league (few are the exceptions, like Panopoulos) he's scum.

I heard that Hagi married Popescu's sister so that would make the other woman, Popescu's wife - his own sister :D lol
