Søren ‘Bjergsen’ Bjerg is gearing up to make a return to the mid lane in either LEC or LCS as sources claim that the iconic League of Legends player will be returning to professional play in 2022.
Former star mid laner and TSM’s head coach Bjergsen will be playing professionally again next year, according to a report from Upcomer’s Tyler Erzberger. By the end of 2020, Bjergsen had transitioned from player to head coach.
This transition came at a time when the team exited last year’s World Championship with securing even a single win. PowerOfEvil replaced him on the main roster, while he moved to his career’s next chapter. Sources have confirmed to Upcomer that he will be joining the starting lineup of an LCS or LEC team in 2022.
The 25-year-old superstar’s contract is slated to expire on Tuesday, Nov. 16. There is a possibility he might consider returning to TSM as their mid laner. However, sources claim that Bjergsen wants to give the free agency a shot for the first time in his career.

In his last professional game before retirement, Bjergsen lost to LGD Gaming. Watch this space for the latest eSports news.
