ESPN: nitr0 intends to quit CS:GO eSports career

American pro player Nicholas "nitr0" Canella, who was expelled from the main line-up of Liquid in CS:GO early August, is preparing to switch to VALORANT. This is reported by the ESPN portal, citing its own sources.

According to the published information, nitr0 received an offer to head the line-up of the new shooter from several major multi-gaming companies in North America. At this point, the player has not decided which of the clubs will sign the contract.

Canella represents Liquid since January 2015. His greatest achievements during this period were winning the second season of Intel Grand Slam (championship titles IEM Sydney 2019, DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019, ESL Pro League S9 Finals and ESL One Cologne 2019) and reaching the final of the major ESL One Cologne 2016.

On August 1, Liquid put the 24-year-old American on the bench. Former Triumph player Michael "Grim" Vince took the vacant seat.
