Former Griffin Head Coach Dae-ho "CvMax" Kim said in a phone call with Kookmin Ilbo that before the start of the summer split, Director Cho Gyu-Nam received 600 million KRW (around 505 thousand USD) for loaning sub-jungler Jin-hyeok 'Kanavi' Seo to JD Gaming. Kanavi's loan duration was for 1 year and 6 months, but his salary of 200 million KRW (around 168 thousand USD) would not be paid evenly: instead, Kanavi would receive a smaller sum for the first 4 months, and then his pay will increase so the total will equal the original salary.
Around 5 months after the loan, JDG approached Kanavi with an offer for a full transfer via Wechat, a popular Chinese messaging app. According to CvMax, Kanavi did not want to sign the 5-year contract with JDG, as it was too long.
CvMax claimed that the day after Kanavi received the message, Griffin's management interrogated Kanavi, accusing him of "tampering". The management viewed JDG's transfer request as tampering because it had not passed through the proper channels, i.e. Director Cho.Загрузка...
During this process, CvMax insisted that Cho applied great pressure on Kanavi. In his phone call with this paper, he said "Kanavi was not in a state to make clear decisions. He was mentally incapacitated.
scared him, saying 'You know you can never be a pro. You've done tampering, you've done a wicked thing, you'll never play professionally. I can make that happen, but I'll let you off this once. Listen to me, and I'll let you off'. "
Director Cho transferred Kanavi to JDG, receiving a large sum in exchange. According to CvMax, Director Cho initially told Kanavi that his contract would be for 4 years. When Kanavi tried to protest that he didn't want that long of a contract, Cho threatened Kanavi with "Do you want to rot for a year as a Griffin trainee?", frightening Kanavi enough that he signed a 5-year contract transferring him fully to JDG.
CvMax claimed that Cho received an additional 1 billion KRW (around 842 thousand USD) for that transfer. Whether Cho has received the full 1.6 billion KRW, or whether he only received 1.2 billion KRW in accordance with the loan duration, CvMax did not know.
We now have an official article, detailing CvMax's side of the issue. Cloudtemplar also recently streamed about this, so I'll try to post a translation soon.
