AnJ Joins NRG Esports

Today we are pleased to announce the addition of Allan “AnJ” Jensen to our CS:GO team. He has been a player we’ve been looking at ever since his team won Copenhagen games earlier this year. Not only did he have a great showing at the tournament but also has had multiple strong performances after that. We believe he will be a great fit for our team and we’re excited to be working with him. 

 

After speaking to Allan, we saw a player that has a great attitude and also has the hunger to win and constantly improve. We believe he will be an excellent teammate and will be able to make our team a lot stronger moving forward.
— Derrick Truong - General Manager
I would to thank Singularity for the time we’ve spent together since October last year. We have grown together and we all find ourselves elevated to new heights from where we started. I would also like to thank them for allowing me to spend my time on the bench to talk to NRG. The past month have consisted of several offers but none that peeked my interest like NRG, and after talks with both management and players I’m extremely happy to have been given the chance to play for this organisation. This move is a dream come true, getting to play with and against players I’ve looked up to for so long is just amazing. I can’t wait to get started and working with the team!
— Allan 'AnJ' Jensen
