Adrian Mutu is a Romanian internatonal footballer currently featuring for the Italian side Fiorentina. Mutu plays as a striker and is the vice-captain of the Romanian nationl team. He is regarded as the best Romanian player of his generation and was awarded the Romanian Footballer of the Year award in 2005 and in 2006.

Adrian Mutu commenced his professional football career with his home club FC Argeş Piteşti in March 1997 against Oţelul Galaţi and in 1999 was signed by Romanian giants Dinamo Bucharest for 600,000 euros.

Mutu’s talent was enough to convince Italian powerhouse Inter Milan to sign the player midway through the 1999-2000 season for a healthy amount of 6.5 million euros. But he failed to settle in Milan and was sold to fellow Italian side Hellas Verona in the same year for 4 million euros. At the end of the 2001-2002 season Mutu was signed by Parma for 10 million euros.

Adrian Mutu was a huge hit at Parma for whom he played only one season. But 22 goals in 36 matches seduced Chelsea to sign the star player for a staggering 22.4 million euros, which made him the most expensive Romanian player at the time. In Septemer 2005 however he failed a a drugs test for cocaine and was sacked by Chelsea the very next month. He also received a 7-month ban and a £20,000 fine from the Football Association.

Mutu was then signed by Italian giants Juventus on a five-year contract in January 2005 and made his debut for the Old Lady of Turin in May 2005 as a substitute against Cagliari. He scored 7 goals in 31 matches in all matches for Juve before being signed for 8 million euros for Fiorentina, for whom he developed a fearsome strike partnership with Luca Toni for the first couple of seasons.

Adrain Mutu has played in over 50 international matches for his nation Romania.
