Dylan Falco has also remained on the team as head coach. He of course boasts experience from TSM, H2K, Immortals and Team EnVyUs too.

In addition to this, Jack "Kayys" Kayser has become head analyst and former Fnatic Academy manager Michael "Garki" has joined as team manager.

Fnatic say there are big shoes to fill following the departure of their team director Finlay "Quaye" Stewart, who decided not to come back to Berlin after Worlds.

The news comes after Fnatic confirmed their player roster: Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, Paul “sOAZ” Boyer, Mads “Broxah”Brock-Pedersen, Rasmus “Caps” Winther and Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov.

Dylan Falco said: "After working with Fnatic for the 2017 summer split and World Championship, I'm excited to continue into the 2018 season.

"This season Fnatic has put extra effort into creating a truly comprehensive coaching and management staff, fitting for a team with high aspirations. Working with Joey and Michael has already been a great experience and I can't wait to see what we accomplish in 2018."

Michael "Garki" Bolze added: "‘I am super happy to be back with Fnatic! Also, I’m very excited to be working with Joey and Dylan. Both are very experienced and very fun people to have around. I believe our coaching/management staff, in addition to our roster, is really stacked this year and we are confident that Fnatic will take back the throne in Europe."
