Report: NIP are interested in signing Jackinho while device out sick

NIP are considering former player of fnatic Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson as a temporary replacement for Nicolai "device" Reedtz. According to a joint report by Dexerto and 1pv, this is due to the illness of the star Danish AWPer.

Reedtz has been inactive since early December last year, when he was unable to continue playing at IEM Winter 2021 due to health problems. According to the sources, an unnamed illness postpones his return to the professional scene for at least a few months.

At IEM Winter 2021, the Dane was replaced by player of Young Ninjas Love "⁠phzy⁠" Smidebrant. It is reported that the young Swede will stand in for the Ninjas at the upcoming BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2022, but in the future, the club wants to use Jackinho.

Ström Mattsson has been without a team since last November, when he parted ways with fnatic. Currently, he is temporarily replacing ⁠phzy⁠ in the Young Ninjas roster at Malta Vibes Knockout Series 5.
