Iosif Lereter ("Loli"), the last player of Ştiinţa Timişoara, who repeatedly won the Romanian Cup against Progresul Bucharest in 1958, came from Germany, shortly after the age of 85, at the wheel of the car vânzarea (!), to participate in the organization of the celebration in his honor.


The former international football champion of Politehnica Timisoara and, at the same time, a graduate of UPT, received a Diploma of Excellency awarded by the rector of Politehnica University, prof. eng. Viorel-Aurel Serban, PhD. The event was organized by UPT and Druckeria under the name of 'Sports Café - Știința '58, and a mark that marked the 60th anniversary of the 1958 Romanian Cup finals, when the team, then named Știința, won the first trophy in Poli history, the first ever conquered in Romania by a student team and the first in the history of post-war Timisoara football.

His presence in Timisoara filled the Polyvalent Hall of the UPT Library with huge names in the area sport, which saw the writing of history in the T-shirt of Știința. Among others, Jackie Ionescu, Nicolae Diminescu, Petre Popa, Ionel Bungău, Ioan Igna, Mihai Coste, Nicolae Secosan, or Doina Moţ were present.

Ionescu, and the one who for decades was the unmistakable voice of white-violet football Nicolae Secosan, remembered that fantastic sixth decade for student football in Timisoara, the "Golden Team" decade.

Florin Drăgan, PhD, the vice-rector of UPT, and Druckeria's leader Sebastian Novovici, offered Lereter and Diminescu the new game shirt that the "boys in boots" will wear in the next two seasons.

The Friday event was opened by visiting Druckeria's extraordinary exhibitions to recall the 1958 Romanian Cup Tour and ending with the champagne rooster.

Iosif Lereter, known as "Loli," the first footballer with more than 300 appearances in Division A, who was a fair-play monument and was not eliminated even once throughout his career, said " I'm overwhelmed by the audience that was here, I did not imagine there will be so many people. "
