Klaj played for Fnatic since February 2016 and was part of the Fnatic Academy team this spring that qualified for the European League of Legends Championship Series through the promotional tournament. Fnatic also released an official statement Thursday bidding farewell to its former member and thanking him for his contributions.
“Working with Klaj over the last year has been an absolute pleasure,” Fnatic manager Finlay “Quaye” Stewart said in a statement. “Always positive and constantly striving to improve, Klaj has given his heart and soul to our organization and for that we are eternally grateful. I’m sure there is a lot more to come from Johan and I’m genuinely sad to see him go.”
PSG currently has Lewis “NoXiAK” Felix at support, and former Fnatic support player and acting team manager Bora “YellowStar” Kim is listed as a support sub. Klaj will most likely be sharing the support position with NoXiAK in the coming Challenger matches.
PSG is 0-2 in the summer split of the Challenger Series, losing all four of its games in the two series, and is in sole possession of last place. The team has yet to make an announcement officially welcoming Klaj to the team, but one can assume it will happen soon.
