LOUD Saadhak Confirms talks with NRG
LOUD captain Matias ‘Saadhak’ Delipetro has confirmed he has held talks with NRG but says that nothing is finalized
LOUD captain Matias ‘Saadhak’ Delipetro has confirmed he has held talks with NRG but says that nothing is finalized as of yet following a leaked screenshot surfaced that showed him in a Discord group message along with NRG coach Chet Singh and agent Derrick Truong.
The development had Esports journalists and fans buzzing as what could be in store, and Saadhak confirmed on Sunday during a stream on a video game streaming platform that he has talked with the coach while insisting that nothing has been finalized.
“There was a talk with Chet, but in part, it was a formality,” he said during the stream, according to Dexerto. “I don’t know if you guys know how the esports world works, but there are a lot of similarities to how things work in the business world.
“In business, sometimes there are moments when you go out there and just [makes handshake gesture]. Does it mean you will be with the guy? No, it doesn’t.
“You’re getting to know [what’s out there], you’re expanding your horizons, you’re getting to know more people. I will not hide the fact that I spoke with him, because I did. But I want you guys to relax. I know there’s a lot of misinformation in esports. Nothing is set in stone. It’s just networking. I think that’s the appropriate word.”
While nothing is set with NRG as of yet, Saadhak stated that he has not ruled out a new challenge for 2024 while also stating if something like that happens he is confident that the team will be able to move forward successfully.
“I think I have done things right and that, if I join another team next year, I will leave Brazil in a good state and will leave people ready to take Brazil to the next level, or at least to keep Brazil at a high level,” he said.
“I have always taught everything I know to those around me. No one will depend on me. I don’t want anyone to feel abandoned. I feel like I have left everyone as prepared as possible. It’s part of what a father does.”
Saadhak added that he has been working with Felipe ‘Less’ Basso to be his successor as the team’s in-game leader.
