Vitality target ALEX as Happy replacement - Report
The 23-year-old Brit has been earmarked as a replacement for Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer, who is believed to be on his way out of the team after less than three months on Vitality's books.
The two-time Major champion will become the second person to leave the team since it signed for the famed French organisation, following the departure of coach Philippe "faculty" Rodier, who has since been replaced by Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam.
The report comes just a week after Vitality surprisingly failed to qualify for StarSeries i-League Season 7 following a 1-2 defeat to Spirit in the grand final of the European qualifier.
ALEX has been with LDLC since 2016, leading the team to several domestic triumphs and to international success at ESWC 2017 PGW. More recently, he helped the team to make a playoff appearance at IEM Chicago, beating Renegades, North and NRG before losing to Liquid in the first round of the playoffs.
Vitality will make their first appearance in 2019 at the Europe Minor, which will be held in Katowice from January 16-20. With these changes, the team's roster will look as follows:
