Sayf replaced with Plopski in the active CSGO roster

The move comes as a surprise as Saif "Sayf" Jibraeel has been Singularity's best player in the past three months with a 1.11 rating, but personal issues forced the 17-year-old Swede to step down from the roster.

Joining the squad is 15-year-old Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora (on the picture above), who is no stranger to Singularity as he has been playing some officials alongside the Swedes since December. However, the player is still tied to x6tence, who have loaned him to Singularity for a two-month period.



In a statement, Singularity's coach, Anton "AntO_oNNN" Van Gorp, explained the team's decision, as well as his expectations regarding Plopski's addition:


"Sayf is going through a really rough period in his personal life and therefore the team and I mutually agreed to put Sayf on the bench for the time being and add Plopski to the active roster. This will boost the team's ability to do what is needed going forward. ", said AntO_oNNN.

"I'm incredibly eager to start working with Plopski and see what we can achieve, Plopski is incredibly talented for his age and most importantly he is willing to learn and compete in the higher leagues."


As for the Swedish youngster, he expressed his gratitude about joining the ranks of Singularity:


"I'm looking forward to play with Team Singularity for the next two months, and it'll be nice to play officially with a full swedish roster for a while. In Team Singularity I reunite with my former team mate HugoXD, and I hope that the framework the team and organization has to offer will help me develop my skills as a team player.", he said.


"I'll be attending Copenhagen Games together with Team Singularity in Easter, so for the next week we’ll be practicing hard online before going to bootcamp leading up to the event. I can promise everyone that I'll be giving it a 100% as these chances don't come often, and I'm happy that x6tence and Team Singularity found an agreement for this to be a possibility."


Singularity currently sit 12th in ESEA MDL Season 27 with an 8-7 record, and they are also competing in Invitational 2 and CSGO.NET Cup 2 – in the latter tournament, the team is set to take on the winner of the match between HEY and Windigo in the semi-finals.


As of now, here is how Singularity's roster looks:


Sweden André "BARBARR" Möller
Sweden Benjamin "BENDJI" Söderena
Sweden Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson
Sweden Hugo "HugoXD" Hallgren
Sweden Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora (on loan)

Belgium Anton "AntO_oNNN" Van Gorp (coach)
