Club career

Cristea started his career in his home town, Iași, for Politehnica Iași. He made his debut in Liga I in 2004, after the team won it's promotion from the Liga II. He impressed in the first half of the 2004–05 season, scoring five goals in 15 games.

In January 2015 Cristea joined fellow Liga I club Dinamo București for an undisclosed fee. He became a favourite for the fans with his technique and his goals from outside the area, but was criticised for his lack of attitude in some games.

In December 2010, Cristea was sold to Universitatea Cluj, for a total fee of €2 million. In the summer of 2012, he was transferred to Petrolul Ploiești, with the entire squad of Universitatea Cluj, when the owner of the Cluj team took control of Petrolul.

His first experience abroad came in 2013, when he was loaned to Standard Liège, where he was wanted by Mircea Rednic, a coach that worked with him at Petrolul and Dinamo.


On 30 July 2013, after terminating his contract with Petrolul Ploiești was terminated by mutual consent, Cristea signed a two-year contract with fellow Romanian Liga I club Steaua București.

He made his debut for Steaua on 11 August, against Dinamo Bucharest, the team where he played for 6 years between 2004-2010. Steaua won the league game 2-1. On September 14, he scored his first goal against Săgeata Năvodari.

He failed to win a place in the first team, and in April 2014, Cristea ended his contract with Steaua.

In September 2014, Cristea reached an agreement with Liga I team Concordia Chiajna.

International career

In February 2007, Cristea made his debut for the Romania national team, in a friendly game against Moldova. In 2008, he was called by Victor Piţurcă in the squad for European Championship, but he didn't receive a chance to play.
