Viorel Mateianu (1 June 1938 - 25 November 1997) was a Romanian football player and coach.

Mateianu was born in Lipăneşti, Prahova and died in Bucharest.

He is renowned as a coach for his interesting football experiment, Morişca ("The Hand-Mill"), in which the strikers and midfielders swap places during the game. Mateianu was experimental throughout his coaching career, in the process revolutionizing Romanian football. To him a football team was before anything else a family.
