A Romanian First Division team's been threatened with a classical concert if they slip up in their hunt for a European place.Universitatea Craiova are fourth in the table with 33 points four behind third placed Rapid Bucharest who they play this weekend.

Craiova's president and owner, Dinel Staicu, said he'd force all his players to sit through a classical music concert or a ballet if they lose the game.

It wouldn't be the first time Romanian football bosses have given strange incentives for players to perform well.Last year Steaua Bucharest boss Giga Becali promised to build a church for every round of the competition his team reached.

Becali said plans had been drawn up for the first church after Steaua knocked Southampton out of this season's Uefa cup in the first cup.Steaua were themselves knocked out in the second round.
