Ionuţ Costinel Mazilu (born 9 February 1982 in Bucharest) is a former Romanian footballer, who currently is manager at Sportul Studenţesc. He is known in Romania for his sharp finishing, pace and technique.



Mazilu started his career at Sportul Studenţesc in 1999. In the 2005–06 season, he was the leading goalscorer in the Romanian Liga I scoring 22 goals. The following season, he was taken to FC Rapid Bucureşti, where he played for two years playing 34 games and scoring 18 goals. On 12 January 2008, Mazilu was transferred to the Ukrainian club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk for a fee of €4 million, the highest fee received by a Romanian football club at that time. He failed to make an immediate impact. During his first year he only played eight games with a single goal scored. In 2009, he was loaned to FC Arsenal Kyiv after his transfer to CFR Cluj failed.[1]

Mazilu is a regular member of the Romanian national football team since the 2004–05 season having played 12 matches and scored 3 goals.
