MICHU will temporarily perform for Virtus.pro
Virtus.pro captain Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas has been benched and is allowed to negotiate with other teams.
He will be temporarily replaced by Michał "MICHU" Müller. Note that it is not a permanent transfer: the Team Kinguin player will play as a stand-in in the upcoming Kiev and Katowice tournaments.
Roman Dvoryankin, VP General manager: “We have promised our fans back in Atlanta that VP will only become stronger in the future. This is a first step. It’s a small, but important one. I would like to welcome MICHU to our family, he’ll be playing with us for the next month including SLTV and IEM events in Kiev and Katowice. In March we will make further announcements on the lineup. I would also like to thank Wiktor for his commitment throughout the years of his time in Virtus.pro. He’s the main reason Golden 5 joined VP, kept playing for VP and kept playing together”.
