Report: daps to step down as Liquid's coach

Canadian coach Damian "daps" Steele will depart Liquid, as journalists discovered.

It is unknown what caused the coach’s departure. At the same time, earlier insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov reported that Robert "Patsi" Isyanov would part ways with the Mareks "YEKINDAR" Gaļinskis-led roster, while AWPer Casper "cadiaN" Møller officially signed a contract with the club.

Steele has been coaching Liquid since June 2022. Under the leadership of the Canadian coach, the team reached the final of ESL Pro League Season 16 and BLAST Premier World Final 2022, and also advanced to the quarter-finals of Paris Major 2023.

Notably, due to the upcoming reshuffles, Liquid have also decided to withdraw from Thunderpick World Championship 2023. The tournament is scheduled to kick off at the end of October.

Liquid's suggested lineup looks as follows:

 Keith "NAF" Markovic
 Josh "oSee" Ohm
 Mareks "YEKINDAR" Gaļinskis
 Casper "cadiaN" Møller

 Aleks "Rainwaker" Petrov (benched)
 Robert "Patsi" Isyanov (benched)
