Bogdan Gheorghe Stelea (born 5 December, 1967 in Bucharest) is a former Romanian football goalkeeper.

Having played professionally into his 40's, he played for all three major first division clubs in the capital, and also spent a vast part of his career in Spain.

Club career

Stelea started playing football at hometown's FC Dinamo Bucureşti; by 1988 he was the club's undisputed starter. In 1992, after winning the champion title, he was transferred to RCD Mallorca, for $650.000. After two seasons in Spain, he joined Belgium's Standard Liège but, unsettled, quickly returned home, with FC Rapid Bucureşti.

After one season in Turkey with Samsunspor, Stelea returned again to his country and joined Steaua Bucureşti, the defending champions; in his two-year spell, the side renewed its domestic supremacy and participated in the UEFA Champions League.

In 1997, Stelea was transferred to UD Salamanca, where he lived his most steady period, remaining with the team seven years, only puncutated by a small loan spell with Rapid. He amassed over 200 overall appearances for the club, mainly in the second division.

After a second spell with Dinamo, Stelea started 2005-06 with Greek side Akratitos FC. Unsettled again, he returned to Romania, with Otelul Galati, but didn't play any matches there because of a bad injury. The following season, he moved to Unirea Urziceni at the recommendation of new coach and former national teammate Dan Petrescu. He gradually and eventually became first-choice and, in 2007-08, at the age of 40, was still one of the best goalkeepers in the country.

Stelea finally ended his long career at the end of the 2008-09 season, helping FC Brasov to a comfortable 9th place; he was almost 42 years of age.

International career

Stelea made his debut for the national team in 1988 against Israel, and represented his country at the 1990, 1994 World Cup and FIFA World Cups, as well as Euro 1996 and Euro 2000, totalling 12 matches in final stages.

He was capped 91 times, the last against Slovakia in 2005. Four years later, he rejoined the national side, as assistant coach.
