Counter-Strike: Global Offensive titans Fnatic have announced the return of Robin ‘flusha’ Rönnquist and Maikil ‘Golden’ Kunda Selim.
Both players left Fnatic in late 2018 and joined an international Cloud9 experiment which never really took off and fell apart after just a few months. They have both been inactive for a large part of 2019 and after rumors of the pair practicing with the squad, they are finally set to make their return.
Fnatic announced the arrival of the two players on September 16, with flusha joining permanently after taking a break from the game while Golden arrives on loan from the Cloud9 bench until the end of 2019.
Both flusha and Golden have expressed their excitement at returning to the team, “I am extremely excited to return to where it all began for me. I’m happy to be back with the guys and lead this team” said the young IGL.
Meanwhile, Robin stated “It feels great to be back in Fnatic, where most of my fondest CS:GO memories were created – and, hopefully, there will be even more in the future.”
