Marcelo ‘Coldzera’ David revealed today that he has received proposals from four different teams and he is keeping them under consideration.

The Brazilian superstar was recently benched by MIBR after he requested to be given a rest finding no motivation to continue playing for the team. Coldzera had wanted to leave the team in 2018 as well but his massive transfer amount turned out to be a hindrance.

Upon requesting to be removed from the active roster, he was immediately benched while also being suspended from participating with the team in the remaining events up until the Berlin Major. Coldzera had to sit out on the action for both BLAST Pro Series: Los Angeles 2019 and IEM Chicago 2019.

Surprisingly the team performed really well in Chicago, going on to finish at the 3rd-4th position. This has been MIBR’s best performance since IEM Sydney 2019 back in May.

Now the Brazilians prepare themselves for the second Major of the year and it has been decided that zews will be playing in place of Coldzera. MIBR are amongst the ‘Current Legends’ but will they be able to hold the same status is a shot in the dark at this point.

In an interview with ESPN Esports Brasil COldzera goes on to say that,

About feeling happy,

“Not anymore. Being happy for me is being on a team where everyone is having fun playing. No longer do we have to win, be forced to win. We have already fulfilled our role.”

“I feel that I am not happy about this pressure we put on ourselves, where there isn't. Nowadays I am not happy anymore and I want to go to a place where I will seek happiness. I will look for people who are there for fun and want to win just like me. First, happiness comes from fun. Whether we like it or not, we are there for fun. This is the first step of all. With fun you give your best, you feel like playing and you are in a good environment. The first step is to have fun and I am seeking my happiness where there is fun.”

About his future,

“We still have the Major and then there is the game of musical chairs that takes place. You have to wait a while to see if you have any new proposals.”

“The financial issue is the smallest of the problems. The biggest being who I'm going to play with, whether the organization has a good structure or not and the club is bored from within or take things seriously enough. There are quite a few factors that must be studied and all this has to be done calmly.”

Apart from this Coldzera also speaks about how he been treated by his teammates after he made his decision, being showcased as a villain which in turn pitched the fans against him.

He also stated that pulling the plug on the international project last year was a mistake, both Stewie2K and Tarik are good players and the team could have really been something else had MIBR invested more time.
