Former Unlimited Potential and Samsung Blue player Lee “Heart”Gwan-hyung announced via Facebook that he is retiring from playing League of Legends and will instead be a coach next season in China’s League Pro League.
“The fans that would make me the Heart I am, and Team MVP that gave me the chance to become special. Players and associates of Samsung, VG, UP, I would like to very sincerely say ‘Thank you.’ Lastly I am happy to announce that my journey hasn’t ended yet. I will be working as a coach for an LPL team starting this year. I know that this will be disappointing news to a lot of my fans, however you will be able to see me in LPL and streams regardless and I will be with you guys.”
It is unclear at this time which Chinese team he will be coaching.
