Gheorghe Craioveanu (born 14 February 1968 in Hunedoara), commonly known as Gică Craioveanu, is a retired Romanian football player.


Craioveanu played for several clubs, including Metalurg Slatina (1988-1990) and Universitatea Craiova (1990-1995) in Romania and the Spanish Real Sociedad (1995-1998), Villarreal (1998-2002), and Getafe (2002-2006).[1] He played for Romania national football team (25 matches and 4 goals in all) and was a participant in the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Craioveanu is a resident of Getafe, a city in Madrid's metropolitan area; during the local elections of 2007, he won a Sports Adviser seat on the local council, running as an independent with backing from the People's Party (PP).[1][2][3] This was the first suffrage during which Romanian citizens were eligible in other European Union counties, following Romania's European integration. 16 June 2007, as a result of a local alliance between the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party and Izquierda Unida, which took away the PP's control over the Sports Adviser seat, Craioveanu convened with the PP not to hold a political office, and resigned from the council.[1][3]

He is also a co-presenter on Spanish television channel La Sexta's football programme Minuto y Resultado, and a radio commentator on Onda Cero

Craioveanu is divorced, and has remarried a Spanish woman named Gemma; he has two children, one from each marriage.[1]
