Myla Pablo will remain a Pocari Sweat Lady Warrior.
Myla Pablo will honor her contract with the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors.
Pablo’s fiancé National University women’s basketball coach Patrick Aquino cleared speculations of the Lady Warriors ace hitter jumping fence from the Premier Volleyball League back to rival league Philippine Superliga.
But Aquino, who also serves as Pablo’s manager, admitted that there were offers from PSL teams to buy-out her contract with the Lady Warriors.
“Sa Pocari pa rin siya,” said Aquino, who added that Pablo will finish the remainder of her 5-year contract that started last year. “Yes, there were offers pero we decided to stay in Pocari this year.”
Pablo posted on Twitter late Tuesday a picture of her while donning Philips Gold uniform back when the Federated Distributors, Inc. franchise was still playing in the PSL.
Her post led fans to speculate that she might make a return to her former league.
ABS-CBN Sports tried to take Pablo’s side on the issue but the former NU open hitter has yet to give a statement as of posting time.
Pablo and Philips Gold left PSL after the 2015 season when the Lady Slammers finished third both in the All-Filipino Conference and the Grand Prix.
They joined the V-League, later renamed PVL, in 2016 carrying the Pocari Sweat banner.
Pablo signed a lucrative 5-year contract, which included a car, with the Lady Warriors last year.
