Bogdan Sorin Stancu (born June 28, 1987 in Piteşti) is a Romanian football player, currently playing for Steaua Bucureşti.


Club career


Early Years

He was discovered at a trial by coach Mihaita Ianovischi who took him to the junior team of FC Argeş Piteşti.

In 2005 he was brought to the first team by Sorin Cartu. After a short period he was sent to Dacia Mioveni in Divizia B, where he had a contract of only 1000 and a clause by which he earned 1 dollar for every single minute played for Mioveni. His team won a few games with Stancu as their only goalscorer. After a season where he scored 3 goals in 12 matches, he returned to FC Arges and made his debut in Divizia A at the age of 19 against former champions Steaua Bucureşti, game which ended as a goalless draw.

He played another 7 matches for FC Arges that season.

In the summer of 2006, Sorin Cartu resigned from the club and former Italian star Giuseppe Giannini was appointed as the new manager of FC Arges. After two weeks of training he decided that Bogdan Stancu and another player, Robert Neagoe, should be released. He was sent once again to Dacia Mioveni where he played in a friendly match and scored a goal.

After spotting some problems in Stancu's contract, Gigi Netoiu managed to "steal" him from Mioveni and brought him to Unirea Urziceni.
