One of the top players in LCS history, Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg says that he wants to return to pro play in 2022. According to a report from Upcomer, the former TSM player/owner/coach would love to come back to either the LCS or Europe’s LEC. Bjergsen has only been retired for a year but seems to already have the itch to get back on the Rift.
Don’t Call It A Comeback?
One of the most lauded players in LCS history, Bjergsen was a mainstay mid-laner for TSM since 2013. After coming to America after a stint with Ninjas in Pyjamas in Europe, the Danish dynamo went on to win six LCS championships with TSM. However, like most LCS teams, his success at the international level was limited to a Rift Rivals win in 2017. Closing out his career with a Summer Split championship in 2020, Bjergsen rode off into the sunset leaving behind his playing days.
The following season he took a head coaching role for TSM. And although they finished the Summer Split season in first place they fell to Team Liquid and Cloud 9 in the playoffs. The early elimination meant that TSM would not make the qualification cut to make it to the World Championships in October.
Diving Back In
Even though he’s technically a free agent, Bjergsen is also a part owner of the TSM organization. So if he does indeed return to play in America, it will have to be with TSM. However, with the LEC already going through some major roster moves, it wouldn’t be the wildest thing to see him test the waters on his home continent. Only time will tell if he decides to make the jump up to the LEC, but if he does it’ll be sure to make major waves in the region.
