What can I say? Six months later, BIG decided to replace me as head coach, and we mutually agreed to part ways.

I had a very good time filled with many great ups but as usual also some heartbreaking downs. I am very fortunate to have collected so many wonderful memories with some of my very close friends. Thank you for that.

I am sincerely grateful to all the players with whom I was lucky enough to work for their trust in me as a coach and their dedication to the team. I want to thank all my former players and BIG staff for making the last six months a wonderful experience for me.

As for what lies ahead for me, I am open to suggestions and looking for a new challenge. I am currently evaluating all options and looking forward to the next chapter of my career, but I want to continue as a head coach in CS:GO.
