hampus is "more than ready to come back"; NIP to assess roster in off-season
After stepping away from competition in January, Hampus "hampus" Poser is gearing up for a return.
Update 23:15 : NIP to assess long-term vision in off-season, COO says
"I am very happy to see hampus back after taking some time off for himself. Esports keeps getting more intense as the years go by, and I have the utmost respect for people taking the time to recalibrate themselves to that environment," NIP COO Jonas "calc" Gundersen has told HLTV in a comment.
"Having him back obviously puts us in a position with a deep pool of players available both on and off the bench, so we'll take our time to assess our long term vision properly in the off-season, and make sure we're positioned the best way possible to make an impact in CS2."
hampus is eyeing a return to competition this summer, HLTV.org has learned. The 24-year-old has been sitting on the sidelines for the past four months due to unspecified health reasons.
Samy Bessi from SUPP, the agency that represents hampus, confirmed to HLTV.org that the Swede is indeed "more than ready to come back" but did not wish to comment on whether hampus would return to the Ninjas in Pyjamas roster or try to join another team.
At the time of the announcement Ninjas in Pyjamas stated that hampus would "take the rest of the spring season off" but did not specify whether the former in-game leader would make a return to the squad once he has recovered.
A representative from Ninjas in Pyjamas did not reply to a request for comment in time for the publication of the article.
