Evil Geniuses of America has officially introduced Michal "MICHU" Mueller as part of their team. The 24-year-old experienced Pole replaced Tarik "tarik" Celik.
“Michał is a talented new addition to our roster and a player who is hungry to compete with the best. We look forward to seeing him integrate with the team and for our CS:GO team’s continued growth and success.”
“Tarik has been a tremendous part of EG’s ambitious goals in Counter-Strike, with what started by lifting a trophy at ESL One NY in EG’s first event back in CS in 2019, Tarik has continually driven EG forward. We are happy to support him as he looks ahead to the next step of his career.”

Earlier, MICHU's contract with an unnamed club was announced by his agent, Krzysztof Kubicki. According to him, the former Envy player negotiated with several interested parties at once and chose the one with the best terms.

The press release of the organization also notes that tarik stays with the team for now and will focus on streaming and content creation both on his own and with EG while exploring the next steps in his career.
