The host of a popular Finnish podcast ‘Urheilucast’ which has allegedly won the award for ‘Finnish Podcast of The Year’ in 2018 and 2019 has made some big claims in the currently ongoing ENCE drama.
As per the podcast which was featured on Spotify, the host states that he has a lot of reliable insider information on the situation involving Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen as he goes on to make a massive claim that, “Allu wanted Aleksib out of ENCE because of jealousy.”
Podcast Host Makes Massive Claims On The Allu-Aleksib Controversy
Parts of the Finnish podcast was translated and explained in English by ‘u/jali_’ according to which the host of the podcast had made some massive claims in the ongoing ENCE controversy, involving allu and Aleksib.
In the episode, the host goes on to claim that allu had grown jealous of Aleksib as ENCE grew in popularity because people attributed the team’s success to Aleksib, “seeing him as the face of ENCE instead of allu”. He further alleged that around the time of IEM Katowice 2019, allu had started coming up with all sorts of excuses in order to convince the ENCE management why Aleksib should be kicked from the team.
This was just the start as the host proceeded to make even bigger claims such as,
- He alleged that allu used to call other Finnish pros during the Katowice Major and ask them if they wanted to join ENCE, “since his teammates were not good enough” and he did this right in front of them, “to show that he was the guy in charge.”
- He also claimed that sometime after the Katowice Major allu somehow managed to convince the ENCE management to bench Aleksib. So taking full advantage of this move, the management renewed Aleksib’s contract for two more years while adding a buyout price of around €500,000 ($612,874.50) and then proceeded to bench him.
These are some massive claims that were made by the host of quite a popular Finnish podcast. Though the podcast is reputed in the region the information claimed has to be taken with a massive grain of salt. At the end of the day, it was all words without a single proof or a reliable source made known that can actually back this information.
Following allu’s interview with HLTV that brought the many underlying problems to the surface, ENCE did come forward to issue a statement on the matter. The organization had stated that the situation was being evaluated internally with their CS:GO team and they would soon deliver an update.
Since then Sami “xseveN” Laasanen has transferred over to HAVU Gaming while reports have come up which suggest that Miikka “suNny” Kemppi might get transferred to GODSENT. It will be interesting to see how ENCE manages to defuse this situation.
