    HLTV Confirmed S5E25 | flusha explains leaving fnatic, desire to IGL, team situation

    HLTV Confirmed S5E25 | flusha explains leaving fnatic, desire to IGL, team situation

    "I really want to be the IGL for the rest of my career", flusha said in his appearance on the HLTV Confirmed show, during which he explained why he once again left fnatic. Clashes with Golden, who "wasn't the first choice, but he was the right choice" for the Swedish team, prompted him to step down and look for new opportunities when poor results started in 2020. The three-time Major winner talked about the planned team with suNny and autimatic, which doesn't seem to be happening,  previous offers from FaZe and mouz, and what he hopes to have in his next project.
