'YamatoCannon' joins Fnatic as the new Head Coach

Fnatic is one of the LEC teams that is suffering more changes this year during the ‘Free Agency’ season.

After the departure of the superstar Martin ‘Rekkles‘ Larsson and the arrival of Yasin ‘Nisqy‘ Dinçer to the mid lane, which confirms that Tim ‘Nemesis‘ Lipovšek is out of the team too, the legendary organization keeps working on its roster for the 2021 season.

One of the first steps was to renew the contract of the Support, Zdravets ‘Hylissang‘ Galabov, but now the team has taken one more step and announced a few hours ago the acquisition of Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi.

YamatoCannon is a very experienced Coach, being Fnatic the seventh team under his command. The last experience for him was one of the craziest of his career: in 2020, he became the Head Coach for SANDBOX Gaming in the Korean LCK.

After that adventure, YamatoCannon returns to Europe to lead the most historic team in the region, and this is how he feels about that:

It is an honor and a privilege. You have my blood, sweat and tears @FNATIC https://t.co/537ZqoAh8I
