Club career


Dinamo Bucharest

Florin Cernat started his professional career at Oţelul Galaţi. In 2000 he was noticed by Romanian giants, Dinamo Bucharest.

Dinamo ended up buying him. The rising star was played most of the entire 2000-01 season, appearing for 25 out of 30 league matches. He helped the team finish 2nd in the league and qualify for the UEFA Cup. Cernat also participated in the team's UEFA Champions League 2000-01 campaign, which ended prematurely in the second round.

Dynamo Kyiv

During that period, Dynamo Kyiv's coach, Valeriy Lobanovskiy was looking for players to replace the stars that he had recently sold. This included Andriy Shevchenko and Kakha Kaladze to AC Milan, Serhiy Rebrov to Tottenham Hotspur, and Oleh Luzhny to FC Arsenal. In July 2001 Cernat transferred to Dynamo Kyiv, where he contributed to the team and won many titles.

Returning from loan to Dynamo, Cernat was rarely able to prove himself under new coach Yuri Semin. On Wednesday 24 December 2008, Cernat announced that he has been in Kyiv for 8 years and will leave in the summer.[2]

One of the most notable games for Dynamo occurred in 2004-2005 Champion League season, Group Stage game 2 (September 28, 2004) against Bayer Leverkusen. Cernat came off as a sabstitute and scored 3-d ad 4-th goals for Dynamo, earning a historical 4:2 victory on Olympiskiy stadium.

Hajduk Split

With new coach Anatoliy Demyanenko in 2005, Florin Cernat came out of favour with the coach and rarely saw the field. For the 2007-08 season, Demyanenko loaned him off to the Croatian Premier League club Hajduk Split for a transfer fee of 312,000 £.[1] There, his team earned second place in the Croatian Cup 2007-08, losing in the final to Dinamo Zagreb.

After the completion of the Ukrainian Premier League 2008-09 season Cernat signed with Hajduk Split.[3]
