Fnatic announced Monday it will part ways with Viktor “vuggo” Jendeby, the manager of the organization’s Counter Strike team. Vuggo will join Fragbite, the largest esports news website in Sweden, as brand manager.
“My two and a half years in Fnatic have been an amazing time, a journey with a lot of great memories” vuggo said in a statement. “I am super grateful to have worked with my passion, with people I now consider friends for life. I’m sure the guys will continue to improve as they’ve done for the past months, and I wish them all luck in the future.”
Vuggo started as an analyst and worked his way up to coach Fnatic, one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world. He started coaching the team in June 2015, when the lineup — widely regarded as the best CS:GO lineup in history — was at the peak of its powers. Fnatic won the ESL One Cologne Major that year and also had a six LAN winning streak from late 2015 to early 2016. He stepped down as coach last August to become a team manager.
Vuggo was a professional for both Counter Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. He successfully transitioned into a coaching and manager role across five teams, including Fnatic.
