Burcă began his youth career at Football School Gică Popescu.
JEF United Ichihara
A year later he got noticed by the Japanese club JEF United Ichihara and signed with them. He played there only four matches and impressed the scouts of Ventforet Kofu and he was transferred immediately.
Burcă played sixteen matches and scored one goal for Ventforet.
In June 2007, Bundesliga side Energie Cottbus announced signing him a three-year contract deal. However, in his first Bundesliga season at the club he did not make any appearance due a serious injury, which resulted a year break in the 2007–08 season. Burcă was one of the key players at Cottbus and they named him as captain in 2009. He was loaned out in 2008 to Chinese club Beijing Guoan.
After his contract expired with the German side, Burcă signed a one-year contract with FC Politehnica Timișoara returning to Liga 1 after three years. He was handed the number 25 shirt. He made his debut in a Europa League play-off against Manchester City in a 2–0 loss.
