Ilie Balaci: "A last word about Petre Deselnicu? It is hard to find my words, I don't know if I can say the last word for breaking up with... Petre Deselnicu. He was one of the men who touched my life. When I was 16 years old I was called to play at Universitatea Craiova, Petre Deselnicu was one of the few who received me with open arms in this football team."
