Mouz Swap Coaches?
After recent events and mishaps, mousesports.CS have decided to switch out their coaches and bring in Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunovic, who will be trialled during the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier and ELEAGUE’s Group E.
Over the past several days, the Mouz management have been interviewing many coaches and the organisation have been hinting at the pick-up of a new coach, who would be revealed at the very first game at ESL One Cologne.
The team arrived in Katowice with “kassad” following the team into the venue. Aleksandar isn’t a novice in the coaching scene. He had a short stay at iNation’s organisation during the SLTV StarSeries VIII Finals and with the Indian-based team Wolf prior to ESL One Cologne 2014.
The Serbian will rejoin with his former team-mate Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, who he coached when he played in both Refuse and GamePub during the early years of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, 2013 and 2014.
After stepping down from the role in the second half of 2015, Aleksandar coached one of iNation’s lineups and recently played two matches in the Balkan Championship Season 3 under the same name.
Mouz’s plan is to try out Trifunovic during the entire of the Main Qualifier where the team is set to meet Fluffy Gangsters, a rising team in the CS:GO Scene.
An official statement has been released from Mouz:
“We were looking for a person who would be respected from the team as a coach and already has coaching and in-game leading experience. There weren’t many options, so after several discussions we agreed to try Aleksandar out during the qualifier and ELEAGUE”
“We plan an intense partnership with Aleksandar in the future, and he already brings a lot of input on tactics and teamplay.”
The full roster now consists of:
