Yoppa was the first Serbian player to obtain first place on the EUW servers Challenger ranking, and one of the first Serbian players to compete in major international teams, according to sportklub. In December 2020, Yoppa joined Schalke 04 Evolution, and officially declared his status as a free agent just last week.
