- August ‘Agge’ Rosenmeier is one of the biggest names in the FIFA esports scene
- He was one of the first FIFA esports players that PSG signed earlier this year
- PSG still have three of their FIFA players as well as their League of Legends roster
Paris Saint-Germain have announced last night that they have released one of their star FIFA players from his contract.
Danish FIFA player August ‘Agge’ Rosenmeier is one of the biggest names in FIFA. He as the FIFA World Cup champion in 2014 and also won the Legia eSports Cup in 2015.
Yet this year he has struggled. He hasn’t won any major tournaments and didn’t even qualify for the FIFA Interactive World Cup, the biggest FIFA tournament of the year with a prize of £156,000 for the winner.
Agge was a star FIFA player for PSG but after a disappointing year he has now been released
It appeared that the pressure of playing for PSG was too much for Agge. He has always been renowned for his impressive defense yet he was eliminated from the FIFA Interactive Club World Cup at the hands of a Brondby’s Marcus ‘ExpectSporting’ Joregensen with a heavy 5-0 loss in the first leg.
It’s clear that Agge hasn’t been his usual self this year and the fresh start could be exactly what he needs.
In an official statement on PSG’s website and on his Twitter, Agge said: ‘Having the chance to represent the PSG was a dream come true and it is something I will always be proud of.
‘Now it is time for new challenges and I am really excited for the FIFA 18 season and where the next step on this amazing journey will be.’
Agge will continue to compete in FIFA 18. He will want to seek redemption and could end up facing some of his former teammates, that will only push him further.
