ALEX and Movistar Riders part ways

The news of Alejandro "ALEX" Masanet's departure shook the Spanish scene this morning, as its top team lost one of its star players.

Movistar Riders, who had been together for nearly two years until today, recently had a heartbreaking end of the season after failing to qualify for the MDL playoffs with three straight losses in the last three matches. 

Following the MDL debacle, Movistar Riders then had a rough exit from the ZOTAC Cup qualifier, spurring the coach Eugenio "kam1kaze" Mongi to publicly criticise what he saw as a general lack of ambition among the players. Now, the team lost one of its hardest hitters in the server, Alejandro "ALEX" Masanet, who tweeted he is open to hearing offers.

ALEX will now join the free agents market

The change comes after a row between ALEX and kam1kaze that got out of hand and ended in the former being cut from the team. Several players bid ALEX farewell and best of luck, including Alejandro "mopoz" Fernández-Quejo Cano who stated he will be a very hard player to replace in-game. On the other hand, Francesc "donQ" Savall Garcia had some harsh words towards his former teammate, saying his poor manners ultimately overshadowed how talented he is.

After ALEX's exit, Movistar Riders is left with:

Spain Alejandro "mopoz" Fernández-Quejo Cano
Spain Francesc "donQ" Savall Garcia
Spain Javier "dragunov" Sánchez
Spain Juan "meisoN" Carlos Chacón

Argentina Eugenio "kam1kaze" Mongi (coach)

2018-04-13 21:36
MUT is shit in international teams like Kinguin but he is to good to be competing against spanish teams. Spanish/Portuguese cs = shit cs. He carried Giants every single match before he played on Kinguin. So stfu and go back to mm you dmg.

2018-04-14 19:28
Since Riders is a club I can't see what's wrong in what I've said. Maybe go to school and then try to correct anyone.
2018-04-14 19:36
they don't even...
2018-04-14 22:56
He is joining tho
2018-04-14 18:11
Mutiris isnt good enough for this team sadly.

2018-04-13 22:05
You guys obviously didnt know MUT before he went to Kinguin. He was already in a spanish team called Giants. He literally destroyed the opponents every single match.. Hes bad to play on an international team but too good for a spanish team. Just check stats.

2018-04-14 00:01
Ofcourse we knew him before, and before he was even worse even though he was crap in Kinguin. This german guy has it, stats against tier5 (i’d say even lower) doesnt make a player good, lol
2018-04-14 14:03
He destroyed every single opponent when he was in Giants. He is too good to play in spanish scene but bad to play Internacional cs. You saying he isnt good enough for this scene confirms you havent seen him in giants /close
