Club career

During his career as a player, Bumbescu won the Liga I with three different clubs, in an unparalleled feat. His first appearances came during 1978–79 with hometown's FC Universitatea Craiova and, after winning the league in his second season, he signed with FC Dinamo Bucureşti and conquered another championship in 1982.


After two years at FC Olt Scornicești, Bumbescu moved to national powerhouse FC Steaua Bucureşti, where he won a further five leagues – being instrumental in four of those – and three domestic cups. He also played complete matches in two of the team's biggest achievements, the 1985–86 European Cup and the subsequent edition of the UEFA Super Cup, which was held the following year.

After 1991–92, Steaua refused to renew Bumbescu's contract. Aged 32, he joined Liga II side Steaua Mizil, where he played three more seasons before eventually retiring from professional football, having appeared in 316 first division games and scored four goals; he later rejoined Steaua as a youth coach.

On 25 March 2008, Bumbescu was decorated by the president of Romania Traian Băsescu with Ordinul "Meritul Sportiv" — ("The Sportive Merit" order) class II, for his part in the winning of the 1986 European Cup.

International career

Bumbescu won 15 caps for Romania during slightly less than three years, scoring once. He did not take part in any major international tournament, however.
