Rumors: k0nfig broke his leg in a fight with a nightclub promoter in Malta
Astralis' Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke suffered a complicated ankle fracture, which came to light a few days ago, in a fight with a nightclub promoter in Malta, Jaxon.gg has learned.
Journalists found an eyewitness to the fight that took place near the nightclub Flow in the city of Paceville. According to the eyewitness, the promoter spat in Wienecke's face, kicked him and disappeared into the club, but soon after, the Dane noticed him at the club exit and got into a serious fight. The brawl ended after k0nfig fell to the ground and started screaming about his broken leg.
Jaxon.gg earlier reported, citing its own sources, that Astralis intends to remove k0nfig from the team after the player's involvement in a fight. The esports athlete said that these rumors are mostly "BS", while the organization did not comment on the situation.
Wienecke's injury will see him miss the upcoming Europe RMR, which will take place on October 4-9. At the qualifying tournament for IEM Rio Major 2022, the Danish roster will be completed by a member of the club's academy team Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen.
