Sharks add real
The Brazilian rifler has found a new home after parting ways with W7M in December.
Sharks have announced that they have completed the signing of Antonio "real" Oliveira on a free transfer. The 25-year-old had been without a team since the end of 2020 following W7M's decision to drop their men's team and focus on the women's side of the scene for an indefinite period of time.
real had been on W7M's roster since January 2019, when he was picked up from FURIA Academy. During his stint, he helped the team to win some important domestic tournaments, such as the ESL LA League Season 4 Finals in May 2019 and CLUTCH Season 2 in May 2020, averaging a 1.07 rating over 259 maps.
"We needed a player for a difficult role, one that most of the CS players do not want to take," Sharks' coach Hélder "coachi" Sancho told HLTV.org. "real has been playing in this role for a few years, whilst delivering very good performances. I think he'll bring a lot of stability to our team."
real's addition leaves Sharks with only one spot left to fill. Last week, Sharks announced that Fillipe "pancc" Martins had been suspended for up to six months after being accused of sexual harassment by a teenage girl on social media. On Monday, the Portuguese organisation revealed that Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira had been moved to the bench, with the Brazilian entry-fragger confirming that he is part of the new project that Raphael "cogu" Camargo has put together, featuring the five players that represented MIBR at the end of 2020 plus Henrique "HEN1" Teles.
Sharks now have:
Fillipe "pancc" Martins (suspended)
