“Sobrang happy kasi lahat nag-deliver,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos, downplaying the notion that they are the biggest threat to Foton’s bid of winning three straight Grand Prix crown.
“Honestly, madami pa din kaming inaayos, madami pa din kaming kailangan i-improve. But the good thing is kung sino man ang ipasok namin – be it imports or local players – talagang nagde-deliver. So okay sila. I’m happy with our performance today.”
“We are prepared,” said Foton coach Moro Branislav, adding that Klisura and Vukamanovic are his former players in a club league in Belgrade while Perunicnic is his personal choice.
“In my opinion, the Grand Prix is a very important tournament so we might as well assemble the strongest possible team. I like our preparation and I believe that our team will make it all the way to the championship.”
Maraño, star middle blocker of F2 Logistics was appointed to become the face of the league starting with the Chooks-to-Go PSL Grand Prix, which erupts Saturday Oct 21 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
