It’s been a busy offseason for Fnatic. Today, the organization confirmed the signing of veteran League of Legends coach Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi and Gary “Tolki” Mialaret, former head of strategy and analytics at T1, as the LEC team’s head coach and assistant coach, respectively.
YamatoCannon’s return to the European region was first reported by esports journalist Jacob Wolf. The Swedish coach spent the 2020 Summer Split with SANDBOX Gaming in the LCK, making history as the first Western coach to sign with a Korean team. Although SANDBOX ended the split in seventh with a 7-11 record, the team’s performance under YamatoCannon’s guidance was a step up from the spring where they came in ninth at 5-13.
