LoL: Mithy becomes Fnatic-Headcoach

Last season’s active support player for Origen Mithy ends his active career and becomes head coach of Fnatic. He inherits YoungBuck.

After an eventful career with some regional titles, Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez ends his active career as a player and joins Fnatic as their new headcoach. He fills the gap left by Joey “YoungBuck” Steltenpool. In the coming season, he will face him in a duel with Excel.

Mithy regrets and looks to the future

In the official announcement video, Mithy talks about his career and how he went from a nervous fan to a seasoned professional. Again and again, he struggles with tears – the step to a player’s pension was visibly difficult for him.

“It’s very strange. I knew that at some point it would be time and that it would be my logical career path after such a long active time,” Mithy says. “But still you never really know when the right moment is to stop.”

For him, the ways to the new season were a bit blocked, all support places in the highest leagues were almost taken. “I didn’t want to play in a less competition-oriented team, so maybe this was the right time to move on.”

After his first qualification for the Worlds 2013 with Team Lemondogs, he came to the newly formed Origen around xPeke and ended up at G2 Esports where he won three EU LCS titles in a row.

His coach at the time was a certain “YoungBuck” in whose footsteps he now follows in Fnatic’s footsteps. His trip to Team Solo Mid in North America was crowned with less success. At Origen, he made it back to the LEC Springs Split Final but lost 3-0 to G2 Esports.

“The only difference to last year is that Broxah goes and – of course – I get there. From my own experience, I know that one piece of the puzzle can change so much. So I also know that the changes will be big on many levels. I also think that with Selfmade, which has its own style of play, a fresh identity can be brought to Fnatic itself.”

Give Mithy a jersey

“Going head coach to Fnatic is so much off. Not just because of the organization itself, but because I thought “this is the last team I’ll have to join to get the Big Three full!”

He explains that – unfortunately – he won’t wear the jersey, but he is very much looking forward to the position and the task. On Youtube, the comments are already demanding a jersey for the new coach.

“I’ve been a fan of Fnatic for a while now. Fnatic was already there when I played Counter-Strike as a little boy. That was always exciting for me. I’m looking forward to 2020!”
