Official: OG bench niko
OG have officially announced the benching of Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen. The press release confirms an earlier report by insider Guillaume "neL" Rathier, which also referred to Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså’s benching two weeks ago.
Kristensen received OG’s permission to look for a new team. The organization emphasized that it will help the player with the search for a place to continue his career.
niko has represented OG since March 2021. Since then, the European team has not won any event, while its best results at big tournaments was the 2nd place at IEM Summer 2021 and 3-4th place at ESL Pro League Season 14.
After putting niko and valde on the bench, the main OG roster features three active players. At the moment, the club has yet to announce whether there will be any more changes and who will replace the departed esports athletes. The team is left with a little time for restructuring, since on June 15-19 the squad will take part at the big LAN event BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022.
Current OG lineup:
Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski
Shahar "flameZ" Shushan
Nemanja "nexa" Isaković
Casper "ruggah" Due (Coach)
Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså (benched)
