Kongdoo Monster finally ended its long losing streak Wednesday, taking a 2-1 win against the Jin Air Green Wings. In an interview with OSEN’s Ko Yong-jun, coach Jang “MC” Min-chul shared his relief with his team’s first win of the season.
“Lately I’ve been very concerned with the team, but now I think I’ll be able to sleep peacefully tonight,” he said.
Kongdoo started the League Champions Korea season with six losses, totaling a 14 match LCK losing streak going back to last year’s spring split, which resulted in being relegated for the summer split. Kongdoo eventually re-qualified for the LCK after a successful Challenger split in the summer.
Wednesday’s win also marks head coach MC’s first since his appointment as a head coach of a League of Legends team. Previously a wildly popular StarCraft player, he joined Kongdoo in December.
