neL: "The head of G2 could have had ZywOo for $100,000, but didn’t"
Insider Guillaume "neL" Ratier on his Twitter commented on the information about the transfer of NAVI Junior’s player Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov to G2, the fee of which, according to him, added up to $600,000. He noted that earlier the CEO of G2 Carlos "ocelote" Rodriguez had the opportunity to acquire the star AWPer Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut for one-sixth of the price.
Reminder: Carlos could have had zywoo for 100k, but didn't. Kinda like selling a bitcoin for 180$. https://t.co/UTyjALadhS— neL (@neLendirekt) December 13, 2021
Commenting on this post, Ratier confirmed the rumors that G2 did not want to sign ZywOo because at that time it was widely believed that the young Frenchman was a cheater.
The information about m0NESY's move to G2 came from several insiders. According to sources, the transfer fee amounted to $600,000 with NAVI reserving the priority right for buying out the Russian player.
