mousesports confirm acoR signing
The Danish player will make his debut for the team on Monday in cs_summit 7.
mousesports have announced that they have completed the signing of Frederik "acoR" Gyldstrand from MAD Lions for an undisclosed fee. The Danish AWPer will replace Chris "chrisJ" de Jong, who is rumoured to be joining the new FunPlus Phoenix squad.
In a Twitter post, mousesports added that they will soon make further announcements about the future of the squad. HLTV.org reported earlier in the month that the international team have targeted Renegades in-game leader Christopher "dexter" Nong as a potential replacement for Finn "karrigan" Andersen following an impasse in negotiations with the Danish veteran over a contract extension.
acoR spent over a year with MAD Lions following the organisation's signing of the Tricked roster in December 2019. He helped the team to win Flashpoint 1 and to become ever-present in the top 15 in the world rankings during the first half of 2020. Results then took a downward turn following the benching of Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen, who ended up being transferred to Astralis.
chrisJ is the longest-serving player of mousesports, having joined the organisation in October 2013. He is expected to take up the captaincy in FunPlus Phoenix, linking up with the ex-GODSENT players under the Chinese organisation, one of Flashpoint's founding partners.
mousesports currently have:
Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg (coach)
Chris "chrisJ" de Jong (benched)
