FunPlus Phoenix has announced the appointment of d00mbr0s to coach the VALORANT team. Note that the 26-year-old Swede was previously an analyst for the team. This is the first personnel change that FunPlus Phoenix has made since the beginning of December, after parting with the Ukrainian coach.
“I am optimistic about Johnta's future and believe that he will find the team he deserves. Now I can call him a fellow rival. FPX will continue to work hard and do whatever it takes every day to achieve our goals, and I am confident that you will see us on the world stage next year! ", -commented the newly appointed trainer d00mbr0s.
d00mbr0s has long been familiar with the professional scene, since he took over the leadership of FABRIKEN in April last year. Note that this team managed to prove itself on the good side, having won several championships, including VALORANT Academy - Europe: Closed Series Week 4 and Rise of Titans. In addition, d00mbr0s was one of the founders of the ZyppanGoKill roster, which later became part of FunPlus Phoenix.

However, in early September, the organization decided to invite fragon to the role of coach, while d00mbr0s received the position of team analyst.
