Marcel Lica

2009-04-24

Marcel Lica officiated from 1992 till 2002 on the highest level in Romania. His last match was Dinamo Buchuresti vs Brasov. Internationally we found only two matches for this century. Marcel Lica also played for the Romanian national team in the early 80's.

huh?
Currently he can be found in an office as an executive for the Romanian referee committee, but he used to be presedinte executiv al Farului which means executive for the football team Farul Constanta. In 2004 however Lica was sacked after three Farul players were banned for drugs offenses. (Farul plays in a stadum formerly called Gheorghe Hagi, but was renamed after the president of the team had a row with the famous Romanian midfielder - who seems to be the owner of almost everything else over there).

arrested
In april 2009 Marcel Lica was arrested, together with FIFA referee Sorin Corpodean, FIFA assistant referee Marcel Savaniu and the vicepresident of the Romanian referee commission. A week before Gheorghe Constantin, the chairman of the Romanian Referees Committee, was put into custody already. They are all arrested on suspicion of taking money from Cornel Penescu, the president of FC Arges. Penescu himself was also put in jail.
