LEGIJA to coach Kinguin at major
Former mousesports player Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić has revealed that he will coach Team Kinguin at ESL One Cologne.
The 24-year-old Serbian caught headlines in June when he took up a position as coach of Nihilum to help the North American team to prepare for the final stages of the season in the ESL ESEA Pro League and in CEVO Professional.
However, he was left facing an uncertain future when Nihilum decided to release the lineup in the run-up to the North American qualifier for ESL One Cologne. The team would still attend the event under the name Maximum Effort but they went out in the group stage after two defeats.
LEGIJA to coach Kinguin in Cologne
Recently, Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić had been seen coaching Kinguin in a CEVO Placement match against melty. And while the organisation has remained silent on the matter, the Serbian has confirmed via social media that he will be guiding the players at the upcoming ESL One Cologne major.
Kinguin had been on the lookout for a new coach since releasing Danniél "dalito" Morales upon learning that the Swede, formerly a player in teams like Lemondongs and AliGon, had a VAC ban to his name.
LEGIJA certainly has a difficult task in his hands as he will have to guide the team through a hard Cologne major group that also includes EnVyUs, Luminosity Gaming and FlipSid3 Tactics.
