Natus Vincere announced the return of Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács to its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup Friday.

GuardiaN thanked his former CS:GO teammates on FaZe Clan in a Tweet published ahead of the Natus Vincere announcement.

"We had some amazing results that i will remember forever, but also a sad one, losing the major final," he wrote. "Its a shame we couldnt achieve that, but thats cs life. I wish you all the best."

GuardiaN, who previously played for Natus Vincere from December 2013 to July 2017, will step into the shoes left by Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko following the veteran player's retirement. Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev remains on Na'Vi's inactive roster.

Zeus' retirement came alongside the departure of longtime Na'Vi coach Mykhailo "kane" Blagin. Na'Vi has since replaced kane with Andriy "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy, the organization's former esports director. Before joining Na'Vi, B1ad3 coached FlipSid3 Tactics and Gambit Esports.

Na'Vi will next compete at DreamHack Masters Malmö, scheduled to take place Oct. 1-6.
