Lekr0 refused to join MAD Lions

Swedish player Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson rejected the offer of the Danish MAD Lions and will remain in the reserve of Ninjas in Pyjamas, reports HLTV.org. According to the source, negotiations between the organizations were successful, but the decisive factor was the reluctance of the 27-year-old eSportsman to change the banners.

The acquisition of the Lekr0 was a priority for MAD Lions: they saw him as the shooter capable of replacing Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen, rumored to have been sent to the reserve at the end of June. Having refused the transfer, the Swedish player will continue to sit on the bench of Ninjas in Pyjamas, where he was moved in May after signing Hampus "hampus" Poser.

The nearest tournament for MAD Lions will be the DreamHack Open Summer 2020 for Europe, which will take place from August 8-16. Together with Ninjas in Pyjamas, the Danes will also participate in ESL One Cologne 2020, starting on August 18.
