- The Danish Counter-Strike organization parts ways with its coach
- Rejin only had a brief four-month-long stint with the team
- He said he is open to offers for coaching and other positions
Continuing on their path of restructuring, the Danish esports organization Sashi has decided to release head coach Allan “Rejin” Petersen in order to “maintain a healthy and economically sustainable position”.
Rejin and Sashi Part Ways
Danish Counter-Strike organization Sashi has been going through a lot of changes these past few months. The late one is the removal of Sports Director Allan “Rejin” Petersen from the organization, which also brings an end to the 35-year-old CS pro’s short four-month stint with the team.
“We have chosen to let go of our Sports Director, Allan “Rejin” Petersen, who has contributed to shaping the positive direction of Sashi Esports since June 2023,” a statement by the organization reads, “We look forward to continuing on the positive path he has helped pave.”
The organization also thanked the now-former Sports Director for his services and wished him the best going forward. Sashi also wanted to stress that the decision to release Rejin was not due to a lack of dedication on the CS professional’s part, “but as a strategic restructuring to ensure that Sashi Esport can maintain a healthy and economically sustainable position.”
“Simultaneously, the restructuring allows us to prioritize those areas which are currently in the need of most attention,” the organization’s statement further reads. “Moving forward, emphasis will be on securing and maintaining the well-being of our players both on the server and outside it.”
Despite the kind words that Sashi sent off Rejin with, it might seem that the Counter-Strike pro is not too happy with the outcome. He took to Twitter to explain that this was “not what I expected and unfortunate timing.” He also stated that he will take some time off with his family but is also ready to receive offers from other organizations.
Whoever ends up signing the coach will receive a person with a ton of experience in competitive CS. Born in 1987, Rejin has been on the scene ever since the days of CS 1.6. He used to be a professional CS: Source player in the 2000s before moving to other jobs, including managing and analytics aside from coaching.
Over the years, he has been leading various teams throughout numerous events, the most popular of which is likely MOUZ. He joined the team back in 2019 when the organization was still called mousesports, helping them win several big events, including the CS:GO Asia Championships 2019, and the ESL Pro League Season 10 – Finals.
All in all, Reijin’s varied experience with different teams and positions would come as a powerful asset to any future team that higher him.
