So far, Team Spirit did not comment on the matter. Earlier this month, they put Degster on transfer due to his inability to stay in Serbia for nine months per year. Despite it, the sniper expressed the desire to play abroad, stating he will "never join a CIS team again unless it's NAVI." Team Spirit may replace him with Ukrainian prodigy Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov.
He already stood in for mantuu in OG at BLAST Premier Spring Finals 2022. The squad finished 3-4th, beating NAVI in the group stage. It was OG's first positive result after the series of long-lasting failures.
20-year-old Degster was part of Team Spirit's surprising run to the semifinal of PGL Major Antwerp 2022, where Abdul achieved a 1.16 rating, finishing in the top 10 of the tournament by this metric.
