Richard Lewis: "YEKINDAR is going to NAVI after PGL Major Antwerp 2022"
Esports journalist Richard Lewis during a live stream on his Twitch channel said that Mareks "YEKINDAR" Galinskis from Virtus.pro will continue his career in NAVI. This will happen after PGL Major Antwerp 2022, he added.
YEKINDAR is a 100% gone. Do you know where? I'll just say it, fuck it, he is going to NAVI after the Major. NAVI want to get him, but it's the word on the street, not reading between the lines. There is likely to be at least one Russian in NAVI that is not going to relocate. It's an opportunity to get a player that's going to be, let's say, cheap.
The insider information from Lewis came a few weeks after Dexerto reported about the possible departure of YEKINDAR from Virtus.pro after PGL Major Antwerp 2022. At the ongoing Major, Galinskis in an interview has already admitted that this tournament could be the last for the current VP roster.
The last time NAVI commented on the future of their team was at the end of March, when they announced that all decisions on the roster will be made based on the results of the upcoming tournaments, namely ESL Pro League Season 15 and PGL Major Antwerp 2022. This statement was published the day after the words of Natus Vincere's CEO Evgeniy Zolotarev that the club will not work with players who continue to live in Russia and pay taxes there during military action in Ukraine.
