“Finally I took the step that I’ve wanted to take for so long. Now, when I was offered the chance to coach such a talented team, it was easy for me to finally make up my mind. Im looking forward to do what im best at, and that is using my brain and create a masterplan to make Heroic shine, and finally make them go deep in the rankings again.
The future looks bright, Im looking forward to finally work with Niko and Borup again. I have always wanted to be a part of HEROIC, and now I’m the head coach – and I will do my best to show the best HEROIC anyone has ever seen!” – HUNDEN.
