Ilie Dumitrescu has resigned as coach of Steaua Bucharest following criticism from the club's supporters.

The former Romania attacking midfielder was only appointed as Victor Piturca's replacement six weeks ago, but has already had enough after coming under fire following the 1-1 draw against Astra Ploiesti.

"I am resigning because I can't stay in a place where I am not wanted," he said.

"I don't think I deserved this treatment from the fans."
