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.

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:
