Nuguri will most likely not be able to return to DWG KIA during this summer period, as many still expect.
After the defeat in the FunPlus Phoenix shirt, Nuguri – the former champion of Worlds 2020, made an announcement about taking a break from the competition in the early stages of 2022. Before that, there were quite a lot of rumors about T1, Gen .G Esports and DWG KIA are ready to “spray money” to invite Nuguri to return to Korea, but he has chosen to take a break to temporarily leave the pressure and focus on recovering his health.
As for DWG KIA, with the loss of Khan and not having the desired signings of Nuguri or Canna, this team has suffered a serious decline. 2 rookies Burdol and Hoya both performed below expectations, leading to the current LCK defending champion only ranked 4th in the 2022 LCK Spring Split Group Stage with 5 wins and 4 defeats. At this time, the Korean media is increasingly believing that Nuguri will soon return to the old roof of DK in the Summer period, to help the old team race for the goal of winning a ticket to Worlds 2022.
However, recently, Doinb – Nuguri’s former teammate at FPX, brought a great news to his fans in Korea. Specifically, the player currently wearing the LNG shirt said that he had discussed with Nuguri and this junior said that he has no plans to return to the competition, most likely, Nuguri will have to rest until the end of this year. due to his recurrent pneumothorax, making this player unable to be in the best shape.
In 2020, pneumothorax also nearly made Nuguri miss his World Championships that year, fortunately he had surgery and recovered in a short time to promptly leave for China. However, everyone knows that this disease will leave a lot of sequelae, and that is part of the reason why Nuguri is always not in good shape, even considering retiring early to ensure health.
Thus, with the revelations from Doinb, it can be said that the possibility of Nuguri returning to DK this summer is very low, and it is possible that this team has also made plans to find a contract. instead of waiting for the ex to come back. Because with such a state of health, it is difficult to expect Nuguri to be in top form even when he returns to play.
