Brazilian CS:GO team Made in Brazil are in discussions with Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe to join the active roster, according to multiple sources. This information comes on the heels of a report by ESPN that MiBR have benched Tarik “tarik” Celik and will trade Jacky “Stewie” Yip to Team Liquid in exchange for Epitácio “TACO” de Melo and Wilton “zews” Prado.
KNgV- was a member of the Immortals organization for a brief period in 2017 before the team transitioned to 100 Thieves organization. After a spell of poor behavior, kNgV- and the rest of the roster were released before ever playing a match with 100 Thieves. Last week, he published a long apology on Twitter in an attempt to reconcile with those he had negatively impacted during his time with both organizations.
One issue that must be overcome for the move to take place is fixing the rumored visa issues that have surrounded kNgV- during his time as a professional player. It is unclear at this time if Immortals have been able to sort them out or if the situation is still in limbo. Should he join MiBR, the five man lineup and coach would field a full Brazilian roster for the first time since acquiring the ex-SK Gaming players.
Immortals declined to comment upon request
