Chelsea flop compares manager to Mr Bean

Former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu has been banned from playing for Romania ever again after posting an uncomplimentary photoshopped image of coach Victor Piturca on his Facebook page.

The 34-year-old, who is no stranger to controversy, quickly removed the image which showed the head of British comedy character Mr Bean on the body of Piturca.

However, the damage had already been done, and the Romania FA have now sent a letter to Mutu informing him that he will not be called up for the national team for future fixtures, according to the Metro.

Mutu, who now plies his trade for Ligue 1 outfit Ajaccio, was reacting after being left out of the Romania squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Greece.

Romania lost the two-legged tie, but it now seems certain that Mutu will not be involved during the country's Euro 2016 qualification campaign.

The veteran striker joined Chelsea in 2003 from Parma, but was sacked by the club after failing a drugs test in October 2004.
