Cluj Day | Alain Tecchi: “I can’t agree to any football match in Cluj Arena because I have problems and people from U Cluj are upset and consider it theirs”

Alin Tișe came up with clarifications, after Monday’s public congratulatory message to the CFR Cluj team, in which he stated that we must “ask ourselves whether this county can support two teams that will perform”, infuriating the “U” fans. Cluj, as well as “railway workers”.

In a congratulatory message from those from CFR Cluj, Allen Tecchi, leader of Cluj County Council, said Monday that it is time to “ask ourselves whether this county can support two teams that will perform or a pragmatic approach is required.”, without hypocrisy. The Cluj community is investing in a single footballing force that can win the Champions League.

A day later, the Cluj County Sheriff returned with more details on the topic that had already been extensively discussed in the public space, indicating that he assumed his criticism of what he said and that he wanted there to be a discussion in this regard.

“I expressed a thought, an opinion and some question marks. First of all, I am not the one who should disband or create the football teams. Secondly, I went through this when I demolished the old stadium. I was threatened with death and told I wanted to go shopping there. What I said there ( midday Monday – editor) is a question mark about our sport in general and what we want to do in the future. Do we want a sport that is a hobby? Do we want a performance sport?

How far can we have two, three or more teams and perform or the Cluj community wants fewer teams and performance. I didn’t say I wanted one team to stay or the other to disappear. In fact, it is known that in my political career I did something for the University of Cluj. The decision to demolish the old stadium is mine and everyone is running away from it. I thought of a three-year budget plan, and the stadium was built out of the county budget.

I would like to have a discussion on this topic of sports. I find that there are difficult times at the moment. The owners do not have the money to fully fund the teams, and the public administrations can only fund a portion of the sports entities. We, from the county council, have not funded CFR Cluj in any way, because I am accused by the “U” of being a CFR member and vice versa. Instead, we funded Cluj University because there was this legal possibility and we did,” Allen Tate said.

“The people of Cluj have to decide what they want.”

The leader of the province’s administrative forum also said he wanted to know what Cluj residents wanted from sports and suggested a discussion on this topic.

“The people of Cluj have to say what they want. They have to say if they want to spend public money on sport. If so, to what extent. We, as a society, need to set goals. If we set some great goals and stick to them, we will perform. “I want to know very clearly what we are doing. Regardless of the criticisms I have assumed, it remains a fundamental problem of Cluj Sport. We can make an effective medium and long-term strategy.”

I like strategy for all sports. Keep in mind that there are teams from cities with a population of 50,000 who have played in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League (Villarreal CF – ed.). There are exceptions, but why can’t we perform too!? Why can’t Cluj have teams, one or more, to perform? Not impossible. People will say I’m dreaming again. I accept that view, I don’t have a problem,” Tish said.

What problems does Tis have with the University of Cluj

“Today I can’t agree to any football match in Cluj Arena because I have problems and people from ‘U’ Cluj are upset, who consider it theirs. And I’m not talking about CFR Cluj here, because they don’t want to play there. I’m talking about any other team. He happened to play with other teams, but he is very embarrassing. Likewise, untold events or other events that affect the lawn. Any decision we make affects the football team in one way or another. We have to decide.

On the other hand, we are also criticized, why Unirea Dej cannot play on the field, because Unirea Dej is also from Cluj. I want to know very clearly what we are doing. It is very easy to sit down and criticize. Any decision I make, and I make my own decisions, will lead to criticism. If the infinite lasts more than four days, why is it so long? Why does the rugby team play? Why isn’t the stadium completely empty at “U” Cluj?

There are also questions: Why not make the playground accessible to the community? I agree, if the community agrees, to provide everything that means sports infrastructure for Team X or other teams for free. I don’t have a problem if this is the community’s desire, but we need to know. It is not mine or the property of an individual. But from the point of view of legal processing, we need to clear things up,” explained the Cluj County Council Chairman.
