Six-time League Championship Series champion and four-time MVP Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg is looking to return to active professional play in 2022, sources tell Upcomer.

Bjergsen, who retired from pro play at the end of the 2020 season, has been the head coach of TSM’s League of Legends team since then.

Once his contract ends on Nov. 16 of this year, the 25-year-old Danish mid laner has his sights on joining the starting roster of a franchise in either the LCS or the League of Legends European Championship. Bjergsen has not played professionally in his home continent since 2013, when he played for the Swedish organization Ninjas in Pyjamas.

Although Bjergsen is set to become a free agent, a return to TSM as a mid laner is not out of the question, a source said about the situation. Bjergsen wants to test the market for the first time in his career, as he re-signed with the franchise in a groundbreaking two-year contract during the 2019 League of Legends world championship, where he became a part-owner of the organization.

During his illustrious nine-year playing career, he won six domestic titles with TSM with five trips to the League of Legends World Championship. His last professional game before his retirement came at the 2020 edition of the tournament, where he lost to LGD Gaming.
