Zonic: "We Didn't Want to Tell That ZywOo Is Sick"

Team Vitality coach Danny zonic Sorensen revealed that Mathieu ZywOo Erbo fell ill before the start of the tournament. He also spoke about the team's sniper's difficulties after the roster renewal.

We did not want to say that ZywOo was sick and taking antibiotics before entering the group stage. He is already recovering, but so far, he cannot participate in training. He sleeps a lot, trying to recover. And this is important for us because all our tactics are built around him.

About the difficulties of ZywOo after the changes in the team's roster:

Throughout ZywOo's career, he had problems in the spring, but by the end of the year, he was gaining momentum. In addition, for him, playing in the updated roster is a serious change. Now he plays in a different system and needs time to adapt. Of course, in terms of communication, too, everything has changed. I patiently follow his development - since the beginning of the year, he has shown good progress. It was harder for him than usual. But otherwise, he is a very talented guy - I haven't seen such players for a long time. He'll be fine, I'm sure.
