The 2005-06 season was FC Dinamo Bucureşti's 57th season in Liga I. The season started well, with the highlight in recent times for the club. In UEFA Cup, Dinamo thrashed Premier league team Everton 5-1. Dinamo went on to win the tie 5-2. The crisis started in the second part of the season. Manager Ioan Andone was fired by the new Executive President of the club Ioan Becali. Esteban Vigo was brought in, but because of the scandals inside the club Ioan Becali was kicked out and Vigo left the club as well. Dinamo counted on Ion Marin for the first games of the spring that started with a 3-0 loss to Oţelul Galaţi. Florin Marin came and was kept manager for the rest of the season before Mircea Rednic took the job. Dinamo finished the season with a 0-0 draw against Poli Timişoara and finished 3rd to earn a very important UEFA Cup spot at the end of a horrible season.
Also in the 2005-06 season, in the UEFA Cup group phase, Dinamo managed to beat CSKA Moscow (Cup Holders) 1-0 but they missed the European Spring due to a couple of close games lost in the last few seconds. Playing against Olympique de Marseille on Stade Vélodrome and trailing by 2-1 in the last moments of the game Octavian Chihaia launched a ball over Barthez and scored for 2-2 but the referee whistled the end of the game while the ball was in the air and before it entered the goal. Some claim that might have been a unique moment in the history of the European Cup Football.
