Faruk Pita, known as “Pita,” is a 30-year-old Swedish former CS:GO player and currently a coach who recently worked for Ninjas In Pyjamas. Following the coach spectating bug, Pita got banned by ESIC for around 5 months in September 2020.

After Pita’s ban has expired, the Danish esports organization Copenhagen Flames reached out to him and signed him as their new CS:GO head coach. The organization also made the announcement on its official website.

While Pita was saying that he is so happy to return competitive Counter-Strike, he also thanked Copenhagen Flames for trusting and giving him an opportunity to prove himself as a head coach.

Furthermore, Pita pointed out that it has been tough since he received a ban from the game, which made him consider about switching to Valorant as well. However, Pita said that he wanted to try himself out in CS:GO for at least one more time.

“I’m looking forward to working with Faruk as he is a very experienced person; both as a player and as a coach,” in-game leader Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen said. “I expect that he can help everyone on the team in our development, but especially the three young guns.”

Pita on joining Copenhagen Flames:

“Very happy to announce my return to competitive CS:GO by joining Copenhagen flames. I’m very thankful for the trust and opportunity given by the management and I will do my best and give my everything for this team.

Since the departure from NiP, it has been a rocky period of my life. There’s been moments where I felt I wanted to throw in the towel, by either taking offers from Valorant teams or doing something else.

CS, however, has been a big part of my life and I have always felt I wanted to prove myself at least one more time as a coach before retiring. Therefore I’m very happy to get this opportunity and receiving trust from the players and management means a lot to me.

I’m also very thankful for the few fans who has always been there for me and supported me, even though you maybe shouldn’t. Including former teammates. I hope I can repay you one day by succeeding with this team.”
