CLG to field pita in ELEAGUE

CLG have announced that team coach Faruk "pita" Pita will be their fifth player for the duration of ELEAGUE.

The North American team have been on the lookout for a new fifth player for almost a month now after parting ways with Jacob "FugLy" Medina, who has since signed for NRG.

With CLG due to play in ELEAGUE on Tuesday, fans were left wondering what the roster would look like in the league, after the team had played their last official matches with Faruk "pita" Pita as a stand-in.


pita to play for CLG in ELEAGUE 

In a statement, CLG explain that, "although there were other options to pursue prior to ELEAGUE", going with pita, who has been the team's coach since December, "was the best possible option given the circumstances."

"This is not an ideal, nor the intended outcome," CLG explain. "We wanted to make the best possible decision regarding our future fifth player but we do not want to rush the process.

"The team has been practicing very hard with Pita and we hope to put on a great performance for ELEAGUE."

CLG will face SK Gaming, Astralis and NRG in ELEAGUE, with their first match pitting them against Jacob "Pimp" Winneche's team. Their roster for ELEAGUE will look as follows:

United States Tarik "tarik" Celik
United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano
United States James "hazed" Cobb
Bosnia and Herzegovina Faruk "pita" Pita

Oh my god, i'm sorry dude! Actually i misread, i did think you were talking to HLTV in general about BenneDoT, actually you were talking TO BenneDoT about NyZtan0.. i agree w/ both you guys, pyth was never a legend in any kind of Counter-Strike. Please take my apologies and keep posting on hltv
2016-06-07 23:47
uhmm...ok, apology accepted. We're talking about Pita though, not pyth.

2016-06-06 19:17
To be fair, Pita's not in permanently. It's not too bad of an idea that they're testing/thinking of players over a large period of time.
2016-06-06 23:44
the reality of it: Pita is whining about not playing cs anymore and disappointed in himself for retiring to coach too early.
2016-06-07 17:03
It would be great if we could perform as he did in fnatic CS 1.6 ... but its gonna be hard. GL pita

Why did CLG removed Fugly, if they were not sure who their fifth going to be? They had so much time to find replacement too, well, I guess another bad tournament for CLG incoming, we need more NA teams to fill up the last place spots. Still easiest 30k in their lifes.
