CFR CLUB star Ovidiu Hoban hilariously chased the team bus down the street after it drove off without him.

The Romanian, 38, was filmed waving his arms frantically as he watched his team-mates heading into the distance.

CFR Cluj star Ovidiu Hoban chased after the team bus after it left from an away game 450km from home without him

Wearing his tracksuit and trainers, he put on a jog to try and catch up.

But realising he wasn’t going to make it, Hoban got his phone out – presumably to call the rest of the squad and tell the driver to stop.

Thankfully a passer-by came to the rescue and he jumped into their white Renault Clio.

Brilliantly, though, the caption below the video shared on Reddit said: “SPOILER ALERT: He didn’t catch it.”

To make matters worse, the incident took place after a CFR Cluj away game at Academica Clinceni for a Liga I play-off.

Clinceni’s stadium is 450km away from Cluj-Napoca – a six-and-a-half-hour drive.

Catalin Itu’s early strike proved the difference for Cluj while Hoban came off the bench with 12 minutes to go.

He replaced Alexandru Chipciu but it appears his most strenuous task of the afternoon was off the pitch – with his heat map no doubt throwing up some interesting results.


Hoban joined Cluj from Israeli outfit Hapoel Beer Sheva in 2017 on a free transfer.

The 30-cap international is looking to add another Romanian title to the hat-trick of winner’s medals picked up in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
