Zeus Might Return To CS:GO As A Coach

Zeus when asked if he would ever be seen participating in a CS:GO tournament again perhaps as a coach the 33-year-old Ukrainian responded by explaining how the current online scene is not too great so he might be returning at a later time possibly when the competition once again returns to LAN.

“I have lived this game for 20 years and so I understand it as a coach on top of this I like to win. We entered a pandemic this year so maybe next year. It would not be fun in this online era as stadiums are needed, the necessary emotions are required, but its online so I just don’t really want to return now, so maybe later.”

Following this he went on to state that for him to return as a coach he would need to find the necessary motivation equivalent to that of a full time job because “A coach is similar to a player, he also needs to put in 10-12 hours of work and sometimes even more. The only difference is he is no longer a player who just needs to sit and shoot”

Having said that Zeus explained that for being a coach one needs to have that motivation, no unnecessary distractions of any kind, and he cannot just act like a boss but has to take care of the players. He concludes by stating that if all the above condition align and such a moment comes his way then “why not?”
