Video: Cluj Boss Dan Petrescu Claims Their Champions League Win Was Better Than Celtic’s Last Night

Dan Petrescu insists Cluj‘s Champions League win over Celtic was better than last night’s victory for the Hoops.

The manager of the Romanian side faced the media following the 2-0 win for Neil Lennon’s team at Celtic Park.

And while admitting Celtic are favourites for the group, alongside Lazio, and that drawing them again would be difficult, Petrescu claimed that the Champions League win for his side was better than what Celtic did last night.

He said it to the media following the game in Glasgow:

Cluj knocked Celtic out of the Champions League back in August thanks to a 5-4 aggregate victory.

The Hoops held them 1-1 out in Romania, but capitulated in Glasgow – allowing Petrescu’s men to win 4-3 and dump them into the Europa League.

Cluj ended up there anyway after losing to Slavia Prague in the final qualifying round – and that set up them being drawn together in a group alongside Lazio and Rennes.
