cogu confirms MIBR exit
The Brazilian veteran plans to continue in CS:GO with "a stable and set project with 6 players."
The 35-year-old took up the role of manager and coach of MIBR on a short-term contract in October, helping to rebuild the roster for the aforementioned events after the organisation had chosen to dispense with the services of Epitacio "TACO" de Melo, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, and Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia.
The decision from the organisation led to Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo stepping down from the lineup, leaving just Alencar "trk" Rossato and Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe remaining and requiring MIBR to find three new players for their end-of-year tournament campaigns. Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira and Vinicius "vsm" Moreira were added on short-term loans from Sharks and DETONA, respectively, while Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles was brought on board to round out the squad.
Although their BLAST Premier Fall run was brought to an abrupt halt, the roster surprised in Flashpoint 2 as they achieved a fourth-placed finish, recording wins over the likes of FORZE, OG, and MAD Lions.
In a tweet, cogu revealed that he has "a stable and set project with 6 players" that is in search of an organisation to represent. No further details regarding the players were revealed, although kNgV- and trk still remain contracted to MIBR; additionally, LUCAS1 and vsm thanked MIBR on Twitter, suggesting that they will not be staying with the organisation. The 25-year-old also added that a contract renewal "could not be sorted out".
