Bjergsen returns to professional play in 2022
Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, six-time League Championship Series champion and four-time MVP, is looking to return to active professional play in 2022, sources told Upcomer.
Bjergsen, who retired from professional play at the end of the 2020 season, has since been the head coach of TSM’s League of Legends team.
After his contract ends on November 16 this year, the 25-year-old Danish mid-laner intends to join the start list of an LCS or European League of Legends franchise. Bjergsen hasn’t played professionally on his home continent since 2013, when he played for the Swedish organization Ninjas in Pajamas.
Although Bjergsen is on the cusp of becoming a free agent, a return to TSM as a mid-laner is not out of the question, a source said of the situation. Bjergsen wants to test the market for the first time in his career, as he stepped down with the franchise on a groundbreaking two-year contract during the 2019 League of Legends World Championship, where he became part-owner of the organization. .
During his illustrious nine-year playing career, he won six national titles with TSM and five trips to the League of Legends World Championship. His last professional match before his retirement was in the 2020 edition of the tournament, where he lost to LGD Gaming.
