Radu L. Petrescu is known because of the incident that happened in the 1988 Romanian Cup Final, Steaua - Dinamo, when he disallowed a goal scored by Steaua in the last minute and Valentin Ceausescu (the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu's son), who was a Steaua fan, asked the team to leave the field and further demanded that the referee be punished by the Romanian Communist Party. Currently, he is an assessor for the first two divisions.
All together Radu Petrescu led three consecutive finals of the Romanian Cup, all played between Steaua and Dinamo, from 1986-1988. He also was an assistant referee in the UEFA Cup final between Dundee United and IFK Goteborg.
