Kane to leave Na`Vi after BLAST Pro Series Moscow
The announcement of the new coach will be made after the event along with the unveiling of Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's replacement, after the veteran player confirmed on Monday that he will retire from gaming after the BLAST tournament.
He has guided Natus Vincere to six LAN titles, the most recent of which at StarSeries i-League Season 7, and to several other final appearances, including at last year's FACEIT Major.
"I would like to express my gratitude, first of all, to the fans of ours: I felt your support throughout 2 years — a big and sincere thanks!," Kane told Na`Vi's website. "I am sad to part ways with the guys who became a part of my life, but such is the work of a coach.
"I have to admit 2019 wasn't the most successful in terms of results. Unfortunately, the main goal — winning a Major — remained unfulfilled. I will keep the memories of 2018, which I consider a successful year, and will be glad that some of the cups in NAVI museum are there in part due to my work.
"I want to wish the fans to keep calm, the backbone of the team is young guys, and their path is still ahead of them. I am sure the next Major will see the squad fighting for the win. I will be happy to see everyone in Moscow at my last tournament in NAVI uniform."
Natus Vincere will be left with the following squad after BLAST Pro Series Moscow, this weekend:
