Natus Vincere are currently considering benching Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, a report by says.

According to the report, GuardiaN has not been playing with the team as of late, with Na`Vi Junior player Rodion "fear" Smyk taking his place in practice sessions at the moment. The Ukrainian youngster isn't, however, meant to join the team permanently, as the organization is taking a few days to reflect on the situation.

GuardiaN could be out of Na`Vi after just four months

Should Natus Vincere decide to remove the Slovakian veteran, it appears they would look for a new rifler to facilitate Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev's return to the role of the AWPer, in which he thrived throughout 2018 and most of 2019 before passing it on to GuardiaN.

The 28-year-old has been a target of criticism since leaving FaZe to rejoin the Ukraine-based organization in September, with poor displays at StarSeries i-League Season 8 and EPICENTER 2019 seeing his average rating drop to 0.95 over the four-month period.
