Career as a player

The career of Adrian Anca started late, as he moved at the age of 25 years to Industria Sârmei Câmpia Turzii in the Divizia B (now League II). He made as scorer attention to himself in his first year. During the winter break of the 2002/ 03 signed him the first division Gloria Bistrita, where, although he reached the third place, but could not prevail.

In summer 2003, Anca returned to the Divizia B and joined the ambitious CFR Cluj. This change became for him a stroke of luck. In his first season, he managed to climb into the Divizia A, which he himself had a considerable proportion with 24 goals this season. Since the club has invested a lot of money in new players, managed the walkover in the Romanian top and the first-time qualification for the UEFA Cup at the end of the season 2006/07.

Was Anca always been a regular in the first few years in Cluj, he came in the 2007/ 08 season barely used and therefore had only a small share of winning the double of league and cup. He left the club to league rivals Oţelul Galaţi, but pulled even in the winter break of 2008 /09 to his former club Gloria Bistrita on. Again, he was still only rarely used and could not build on his earlier achievements. In early 2010 he went to the League III to Luceafarul Oradea, where he ended his career in the summer of the same year.

Career as a coach

Even in his time at Luceafarul Oradea Anca worked as an assistant coach. In the summer of 2010, he took over FC Sylvania Şimleu Silvaniei in Liga II for the first time a club as head coach, but was dismissed again in October.
