Club careerEdit

Viitorul ConstanțaEdit

On 23 February 2014, aged 19, Tănase scored his first Liga I goal in Viitorul Constanța's 2–1 away win against Dinamo București.[1]

FCSBEdit

On 8 August 2016, FC Steaua București signed Tănase on a five-year deal for a reported 1.5 million, with his former club being entitled to 25% of a future transfer fee.[2][3] He was assigned the number 10 jersey and scored four days later on his debut for the Roș-albaștrii, his goal helping to a 2–0 away victory over FC Botoșani.[4]

On 2 August 2017, he netted his first European goal in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round 4–1 away success against Viktoria Plzeň.[5]

International careerEdit

On 31 May 2014, Tănase earned his first cap for Romania in a 1–0 win against Albania after coming on as an 83rd-minute substitute for Alexandru Maxim.[6]

Style of playEdit

Tănase is a versatile footballer who is capable of playing in several positions along the front-line, but has stated that he prefers to be a number 10.[7] Former Romanian international Gheorghe Hagi regarded him as one of the most promising talents of his generation.[8]

In spite of that, Tănase has been accused by opponents and media alike of excessive diving–especially during his time at FCSB.[9][10][11]
