NiKo: I think we are very close to winning trophies

DEXERTO spoke with G2’s NiKo ahead of their first match in the BLAST Premier Fall Groups.

Nikola “NiKo” Kovac and G2 are yet to lift a trophy almost 12 months on since the Bosnian joined the French organization. They came close to winning the title at IEM Cologne, but unfortunately got swept by s1mple and company from NAVI in the grand final of the event.

The Bosnian is happy with the progress that him and his team have made in the recent months in establishing themselves as a solid top three team in the world ranking. However, NiKo stated that G2 are definitely not satisfied with their results and that he wants to win trophies.

“I joined the team to win trophies, not to be top three or top five. We are definetly not satisfied with our results. But overall, I’m really happy. Everyone is working really hard and willing to sacrifice everything to achieve the same goals. We’re on the same page in most of the things. That’s the reason why we have been a bit more consistent than when I joined.” NiKo told DEXERTO.

“I think we are very close to winning trophies. I think it still requires a lot of practice, and maybe implementing some new things or switching some roles around. We definitely have what it takes to win one and that it’s a matter of time before we do it. I’m not saying that we will create an era or anything. But I’m very confident we will lift some trophies.”

At the ESL Pro League Season 14 event, G2 finished bottom of their group without managing to take a single victory with them from five series. The French-Balkan roster will be looking to deliver a much better performance in BLAST Premier Fall Groups and are once again expected to finish on top in their group.

“I think it’s going to be hard to see a worse G2 (than the on in EPL). I don’t think we can get any worse than that, so that’s always a good sign. We had a sloppy start, which is not a good sign, but I’m confident we can get back to the performances we had.”

NiKo and G2 are taking upon MIBR in their opening match at the event on Monday at 16:30 (CET). The winner of the match will advance to the Upper final where a spot in the Group final is at stake.
