Dinamo Bucharest football team manager, Mario Nicolae, said in a video that he started to put his Orthodox faith into practice.
The announcement was made in response to those interested in why he left his hair long and grew a beard.
“I became a practising Orthodox Christian. As I always had to be. I have always had such aside, a love for the church, for priests and for church hymns.”
“But I was like a lost sheep. I am a practising Christian, I want to be a confessor of Orthodoxy. That has brought me peace of mind in recent years. Having God in my life is the best thing that can happen to me. That’s why I have peace of mind when I’m attacked. I don’t mind that jokes are made, that people say that I have a priest’s face”.
“This is a complex of Romanians. About Sergio Ramos, would we say he’s a monk?” Mario Nicolae told GSP Live.
