Why have a discussion? the question 200 times Let us discuss when? (nothing ironic) That I spoke with Mr Varga and with Pandele and with Niculae from Astra and with Rotaru … The discussions are very simple, if I decided to continue, as I decided, I would continue. If not, I would pay that clause and I could go anywhere. ” said Mirel Rădoi on Telekom Sport.
