Nicolae Dica is one of the great exports of Fc Arges when they produced a generation that involved Adrian Mutu and Rica Neaga. While Mutu was soon abroad to play on the highest levels in Europe, Dica stayed in Romania and became one of the classiest playmakers at Steaua Bucuresti. N.Dica was a consistent scorer and assist man and also became the keyplayer in attack when Steaua had great stints in Europe. He also got called up by the NT and really managed to compete with Mutu for a short period as they both constantly made the scoring sheet. Then something must've happened and I don't know what. His performances got worse and he suddenly stopped to deliver. He has always been known to be very slow which probably explains why he never had that many tempting offers from abroad but his decline began quickly and his move away to Calcio Catania wouldn't help his career either as his difficult attitude makes it hard for him to integrate into a team.

that'd be a bit too early to talk about a trend. Dica was signed from Catania after CFR refused to buy him despite their promise to attempt it atleast. I'd definately prefer Turkey over the Gulf region though as they'd atleast stay in "Europe" and Turkey is building a nice league there.
