Fabien Neo, the founder of the eSports organization Team Vitality, David, spoke in an interview about the negotiations for the extension of Mathieu ZywOo Erbo’s contract.
The head noted that without the player the team could not survive:
ZywOo is the reason why Team Vitality came to Counter-Strike. This project was made for Erbo. ZywOo is Team Vitality. Team Vitality is ZywOo. We have a great bond of trust. I find it impossible to project without ZywOo. We are discussing a contract extension.
