LNZ replaces ztr on Young Ninjas – team's ex-IGL loaned out
Following the changes in the female roster, NIP announced the reshuffle in their academy team. Young Ninjas' in-game leader Erik "ztr" Gustafsson has been loaned out to an unnamed organization and replaced by former team member Linus "LNZ" Holtäng.
NIP's press release posted on social media reveals that ztr's contract had been extended before the loan. The new agreement with the 19-year-old Swede runs for the next three years.
Gustafsson is expected to join the new GODSENT lineup, where he will compete alongside Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora, William "draken" Sundin, Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson and Joel "joel" Holmlund, according to a recent BLIX.gg's report.
ztr joined Young Ninjas in December 2020. Together with the club's junior team, he had successful runs in WePlay's league for academies. As a captain, he led his squad to victory in the last season and was also brought into NIP's main roster for several tournaments.
LNZ returns to Young Ninjas after five months of inactivity. Before being removed, he spent a year and a half with the team.
Young Ninjas are currently:
Linus "nilo" Bergman
Adam "adamb" Ångström
Max "maxster" Jansson
Sean "eraa" Knutsson
Linus "LNZ" Holtäng
Ahmed "abdi" Abdi (coach)
