Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has established his own eSports team.
The Spaniard had thoughts of collaborating with other teams but decided to create his own brand referred to as Rebel Gaming and according to the brand’s marketing director Carles Mayans, the player had different thoughts about the entire issue.

“Rebels has to do with the feeling that he had within the world of football, of being someone who plays but who also likes other things, such as anime (Japanese animation), playing the drums, video games… He felt a slightly different profile within what was known, and that is why that name fit him at first,” Mayans, explained to EFE.

‘League of Legends’, the team game consisting of reaching the opponent’s base, which is the most representative of the competitive scene; the shooting game with characters ‘Valorant’ – in whose competition in Spain it debuted this week against other soccer clubs such as Koi or CASE – and ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege’, another ‘shooter’ video game, which is precisely the one that De Gea himself practices the most in his spare time.
