Blue to miss the first week of LEC’s Summer Split due to health issues

The mid laner will be replaced by the team’s academy player
SK Gaming will be missing one of its core players, Ersin "Blue" Gören, in the first week of the League of Legends European Championship 2021 Summer Split.

The player will be replaced for the upcoming matches by Mihail “twohoyrz” Petkov.

Blue’s absence is caused by his respiratory concerns, although the organization has revealed that they are not an effect of Covid-19.

"A few days ago, Blue was admitted into hospital for chest pains and respiratory issues," SK's statement reads. "After initial scans, doctors confirmed it is not Covid-19 related and concluded that he will make a swift recovery."

The team anticipates Blue to return for the second week of LEC’s Summer Split. What’s more, he will be regularly seeing a pneumologist to ensure that no other issues appear.

The Bulgarian joined SK Gaming Prime last month after a successful showing in the latest European Masters, where his ŠAIM SE SuppUp made it to the quarter-finals. He has been practising with the main team for the past couple of days already.
