NiP have announced the addition of Faruk "pita" Pita to their team in the form of a strategy adviser via their Facebook page.
NiP join the ranks of Titan, fnatic and their first ESL One opponent Indian Wolf as teams having recruited coaches, whose benefits were outlined in our article on coaching.

The Swedes are known for a skill-heavy playing style and have changed their in-game leader a number of times in CS:GO, though always returning to Xizt at the end.
On their Facebook page, NiP gave the following statement regarding pita's addition to the team, who will be traveling to ESL One Cologne later today:
"We would like to give a warm welcome to our latest recruit Faruk "Pita" Pita. He will act as a Strategy Advicer for our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, with his knowledge of being a in-game leader in the past he will be the perfect match for our team to develop and take the game to another level. His first event as a Strategy Advicer will be at Gamescom so look forward to some high level tactics from NiP at Gamescom!"
pita's first match as NiP's strategy adviser will begin at 09:00 tomorrow, when the heavy favorites will take on Wolf. Later they will play either HellRaisers or Epsilon.
