London, UK – 4 June 2021: Rix.GG, a top UK esports organisation, announces Jay “Salty_Jayy” Batzofin will be the VALORANT team manager for the Thunder roster.
Jay “Salty_Jayy” Batzofin started his esports career in 2014 and entered the scene as a professional player for Counter Strike: Global Offensive. In 2017 he moved to the UK to study Esports.

He’s a great guy and we share the same values and style of management which is clear through the work he’s done with us over the last few weeks.

It’s an exciting journey to be sure and while I’ll make no promises to what the team will achieve while I’m serving as their team manager, I can promise that I’ll do everything to help them reach their goals. Every ounce of effort the team puts in I’ll match. The team is ready and I’m ready. We’ll see you at LAN!”
