tarik, pita to leave CLG
CLG have announced that Tarik "tarik" Celik and coach Faruk "pita" Pita will leave the team after ELEAGUE.

As for pita, the Bosnian coach has expressed a desire to return to Europe to be closer to his family - a decision that is also in line with the interests of the players, who allegedly believe that the team "is in need of a fresh start from the top down."
CLG have been without a stable five-man roster since mid-May, when they parted ways with Jacob "FugLy" Medina. As weeks went by, the uncertainty around the team grew, and in the end they resorted to fielding pita as their fifth man in ELEAGUE and ESL One Cologne.
