Juve steps down from Into the Breach: "Sometimes you have to focus on you"
The Portuguese coach has decided to bench himself to take a break from competition.
"I decided to bench myself between our bootcamp and IEM Cologne. It was a hard decision, but necessary for myself. It's been a long road and sometimes you have to focus on you," a statement from the 20-year-old reads.
"I'll hopefully be back on the big stage soon."
Despite his young age Juve acted as the British organization's head coach for the better part of the past two years. Their most recent success together came earlier this year, when Into the Breach shocked the world with a run to the quarter-finals at the BLAST.tv Paris Major.
In the two months that followed the Major the team lost its British core with the departures of Sebastian "volt" Maloș, who went on to join another Paris surprise team GamerLegion, and Cai "CYPHER" Watson, who has been linked with a move to TSM.
Into the Breach filled the gaps with Adam "NEOFRAG" Zouhar and Aurimas "Bymas" Pipiras and have since made their LAN debut at the IEM Cologne Play-in, placing last following convincing losses to Ninjas in Pyjamas and TheMongolz in Juve's final appearance with the team.
