Petrescu was part of the Steaua squad that reached the European Cup semi-finals (1988) and the final (1989).In 1991, Petrescu was bought by Italian club Foggia in a period when the club saw promotion to Serie A. In 1993, he moved to Genoa.
Petrescu signed for Sheffield Wednesday in 1994 from Genoa, after a successful 1994 World Cup for Romania. After one season at Hillsborough, he signed for Chelsea and featured prominently there for the next five years. During his term at Chelsea, he was a member of the teams which won the FA Cup in 1997 and the League Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup (both in 1998).
After falling out with Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli after a defeat to Manchester United (a game in which he scored),Petrescu never played for the club again and was not even selected as a substitute for the 2000 FA Cup final against Aston Villa.
Turning down a move to Southampton in August 2000,he instead moved to Bradford City for £1 million, scoring one goal, against West Ham United.In January 2001, Petrescu’s former Chelsea manager, Glenn Hoddle, eventually persuaded him to join Southampton for a “nominal” fee.He initially settled in well at The Dell, scoring against Leicester City and Manchester City in his first few matches.
In March, Hoddle left the Saints to take up the managerial reins at Tottenham Hotspur and his replacement, Stuart Gray, dropped Petrescu, replacing him with Hassan Kachloul for the remainder of the season. After making only two substitute appearances in the 2001–02 season, Petrescu was released and returned to Romania. Petrescu returned to his native Bucharest for a last season as a footballer, with Național București.
After retiring in 2003, Petrescu pursued a career as a coach. He began his managerial career in July 2003 with second division side Sportul Studențesc, whom he led to promotion before taking over at Rapid Bucharest in December, but stepped down in April 2004, after only six games and four months at the helm. He then returned for a second spell at Sportul Studențesc, where he helped the club to a seventh-place finish in Diviza A.
On 19 August 2020, CFR restarted the European campaign against Maltese champions Floriana FC with a 2–0 victory but were eliminated in the second round by Dinamo Zagreb on penalties. After CFR was eliminated from the Europa League, and had begun to faltering domestically, Petrescu announced on 30 November that he and the club had agreed to terminate his contract.
On 28 August 2021, after a weak European campaign which saw the club fail to qualify for the Europa League, CFR Cluj’s owner Nelutu Varga dismissed Marius Sumudica, and after few days of negotiations, Petrescu signed a contract on 31 August for a third stint at CFR Cluj.
