Jendeby will take over as fnatic’s coach following the departure of Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg, who has decided to play competitively again after a year-long break.
“I didn’t hesitate for a second when Patrik approached me regarding the Head Coach position,” he said in a statement.
“Fnatic has always been the team closest to my heart and I remember cheering for the team in my early eSports years when they boasted the likes of diGitaL and zaffe.
“I go way back with some of the players and I’m eager to begin working with them full-time in the pursuit of establishing ourselves as the sole number one team in the world.
“I know filling the shoes of Devilwalk will be tough, but I’m up for the challenge and I’m confident that this will be a great year for Fnatic.”
fnatic will take on Na`Vi in the Upper semi-final stage of the fragbite Masters finals, where they will be looking to defend their title from season 3.
