Official: degster to replace mantuu in OG at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022

OG have officially announced the addition of Abdul "degster" Gasanov to the squad as a stand-in for BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022. The official announcement was published the day after the Russian AWPer himself announced that he was going to the big LAN tournament.

According to the press release, degster will temporarily replace Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski, who fell ill and will not be able to come to Lisbon for the BLAST event. OG did not reveal what exactly the Pole fell ill with. According to insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov, the European team's dedicated AWPer tested positive for coronavirus.

Gasanov will play at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 a few days after being benched in Team Spirit. The club removed him from the starting five and put him on the transfer list amid the player's unwillingness to permanently reside in Serbia, where the team has been based since March of this year.

The upcoming BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 will take place from June 15 to 19. OG will compete in Group B and play the opening match against NAVI.

At BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022,  OG will play with the following roster:

 Shahar "⁠flameZ⁠" Shushan
 Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković
 Adam "⁠NEOFRAG⁠" Zouhar
 Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas
 Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov (stand-in)
