After being handed a walkover against Leo Vegas, GIGsters United are officially champions of the Pentasia All-in League with 10 wins in 10 games, no matter the result in the league final against Bethard on Thursday. The picture above is from when they won All-in Translations' SiGMA Cup 2017.
This is what Endre Nesset had to say when we told him about the walkover that gave his team their first league title.
"It's a bit anticlimactic to win like this, but it feels incredible in any case. Our goal was to get payback after the bitter ending of last season (GIGsters United sent a complaint which was rejected and Unibet won). We had a fairly small squad with only 8-9 players, but everyone have been extremely loyal and the team has become very interoperable. We had a plan and the players know each other well."
Who has been your key players?
"Felix (Preussner) is the best player in the league if you ask me. He leads the defence with authority but also contributes a lot in our offensive play. I also want to mention Eirik Thorvaldsen who has been our supersub. He has played in every possible position with good performances in all of the games."
Any comment about the new management and referees?
"A big improvement in my opinion. The referees have kept consistent and the matches under control as far as what I have seen. The League Manager has been very helpful with rescheduling requests, and it has been more interesting to follow the league this year as the results have been updated more quickly. GIG is very thankful for this".
