Vitality’s ace Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut might be playing brilliantly for his side which has finished right behind Astralis in the group stage of the ESL Pro League Season 11, but his mother is still concerned about both the team and ZywOo himself.

In a tweet made by ZywOo’s mom on 23rd March which is now deleted, she had tagged Vitality’s coach Remy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam showing concern for the team while informing them of ZywOo’s mindset, this is what the tweet read.

“Hello, I just want to say that, I need to report that I feel that Mat (ZywOo) is frustrated. I don't think that he has full confidence in his game. I don't know what you think but I needed to say this, to help the team improve.”

Note: The above quote has been translated from French to English, and might contain a few grammatical changes and sentence restructuring.

Following the Tweet, Vitality went on to lose against Astralis by a score of ‘2-1’ where ZywOo held an overall rating of 1.18 across the three maps, leading the scoreboard for his side in each and every map.

ZywOo has not been playing all that bad himself but their loss against Spirit was certainly a surprise for everyone. Though the team bounced back against NiP, it wasn’t ZywOo leading the team this time around as he was clearly not in peak shape.

His mother might have noticed something off with him, or must have had a conversation with him, which she translated via a Tweet to the team's coach. Vitality has already lost Alex "ALEX" McMeekin to a similar reason, as the player could not keep up with the travel and the mounting stress got to him.

ZywOo carrying the load for Vitality has been the story for the side for a long time now, and while cracks are starting to show up, the team is still a strong contender, but they certainly cannot let another player depart their roster at the moment and need to look into such matters seriously.
