olofmeister on retirement: “I haven’t made my mind up yet”

Olof “⁠olofmeister⁠” Kajbjer‘s career may not be at an end despite his imminent departure from FaZe. In a post-match interview following FaZe‘s dominant victory over Liquid, the 29-year-old revealed that he has not come to a final decision regarding his career prospects after the change to the international team’s roster comes to fruition.

“When I took the break with FaZe, that was my idea to think about what I want to do,” olofmeister explained. “I have retirement in my mind, but I haven’t decided on anything yet. I see a lot of people writing and I don’t want to say anything until it all becomes official, but I haven’t made my mind up yet, so I just want to say that.”

The two-time Major champion is still pondering his future

The statement from olofmeister comes after Marcelo “⁠coldzera⁠” David stated in recent interviews that the Swedish player was set on retiring. In an interview with HLTV.org published earlier on Friday, the Brazilian said that FaZe will soon announce a new in-game leader, who is understood to be Finn “⁠karrigan⁠” Andersen. The Danish player is currently without a team after being replaced by Christopher “⁠dexter⁠” Nong on mousesports.

olofmeister, who was named the best player of 2015, has gotten off to a strong start in the BLAST Premier Spring Groups, averaging a 1.36 rating in FaZe‘s win over Liquid. The team are next slated to take on Natus Vincere in the Group C upper bracket final on Saturday at 16:30
