Steaua boss under pressure

Next Story
Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi Becali has vowed he will sack interim coach Massimo Pedrazzini if his side lose at home to Arsenal in the Champions League.

The 49-year-old Pedrazzini has overseen two victories so far since he took the reins on a temporary basis last month - 4-0 at Bacau in the cup and 1-0 against Vaslui in the league on Saturday - but it seems the Italian has not yet earned the backing of the owner.

"If we lose, Pedrazzini will be sacked," said Becali, perhaps in a bid to motivate his players, who have each been promised a £20,000 bonus if they overcome the Gunners.
