Guild Esports has announced the signing of their fifth player Saif “Sayf” Jibraeel and CS:GO veteran André “BARBARR” Möller to the VALORANT roster.
Saif ‘Sayf’ Jibraeel has been on the radar of Guild Esports for quite sometime after the player was seen practising with the team following the departure of Filip ‘goffe’ Gauffin.
Having last seen action under the Ninjas in Pyjamas organisation, the 20-year-old Swede will reunite with three of his former BONK teammates in Guild.
Completing the all Swedish roster is André ‘BARBARR’ Möller, which will take over the coaching role. The organisation backed by David Beckham has been absent of any coaching staff since their inception into competitive VALORANT on October 2020, with BARBARR being the first of its kind to be signed to the organisation.
I can’t wait to unite with my old team mates and remind everyone of how well we mesh together in a match, and the opportunity to work within Guild makes it even more special.Sayf on Guild’s Statement
This will be his first experience in VALORANT, as the 30 year-old veteran will be making a direct transition from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive where he has risen to fame playing under the Epsilon Esports organisation until he eventually made the switch over to coaching in 2019.
After a brief stint working closely in his domestic scene, BARBARR spent 2020 coaching the Spanish squad of Wygers, a team that would gather some attention at a regional level but fail to consolidate any international success.
With high expectations surrounding Guild, featuring some of the strongest players in Europe such as William ‘draken’ Sundin, the team will face its first challenge next week at the Home Ground by Red Bull tournament, going up against some of Europe’s finest.
