Virtus.pro have announced that they will field CSGL talent Michał "MICHU" Müller as a stand-in at IEM San Jose.

The former Gamers2 player will step into the shoes of Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, who will stay at home due to a problem with his right eye, team manager Jakub "kuben" Gurczynski revealed on Facebook.

Pogorzelski will be rested for the event but is expected to make a full recovery in time for the FACEIT League Stage 3 finals, in Jönköping, from November 26-28.

Michał "MICHU" Müller is already in the United States as CSGL attended the RGN Pro Series Championship, in Santa Ana, California. Despite some strong performances from the 18-year-old, the team crashed out of the tournament in the group stage following defeats against Liquid and Games Academy.

This is the second time that Müller fills in for Virtus.pro: back in March, he replaced Pogorzelski, also due to health issues, as the team attended Gfinity Spring Masters I, in London.

Virtus.pro will face G2 in the quarter-final stage of IEM San Jose, kicking off on Saturday. The team will attend the event with:

 Filip "NEO" Kubski
 Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas
 Paweł "byali" Bieliński
 Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski
 Michał "MICHU" Müller (stand-in)
