flusha steps down from fnatic for the third time in his career
In a statement this Friday, fnatic announced that they have chosen to move Robin “flusha” Rönnquist out of the active roster, marking the third time in the 27-year olds long and coveted career that he has left fnatic. During his third stint on the roster, he helped fnatic achieve wins at DreamHack Masters Malmö and ESL Pro League Season 11, but the results have fizzled out towards the tail end of 2020 which likely sparked fnatic to change up their squad for 2021.
Coach Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson spoke in detail about flusha’s removal in a statement on fnatic’s website;
“Looking to the future of Fnatic CS:GO we’ve had to make some tough decisions about our roster and our legendary players. Robin is an amazingly talented player and I’m sure he will find a place in a top tier team very quickly. Flusha dropping to our inactive roster opens up a place on our active roster that we will use to rejuvenate our team for the 2021 season.”
According to a report by DBLTAP, fnatic have set their sights on 21-year old AWPer Jack “Jackinho” Ström Matsson, a move that would likely see Jesper “JW” Wecksell move back into the role of a hybrid AWPer.
According to the same report, flusha could be set to reunite with his former Cloud9 teammate Timothy “autimatic” Ta in a new team alongside Miikka “suNny” Kemppi who recently departed ENCE.
fnatic’s roster is now down to the following four players:
