“Bale nakausap ko yung group supervisor [Mike Verano] namin, binaba na nila ako dahil sa sitwasyon. Kaya ngayon, ang hinahawakan ko na lang is yung NU males’s and Choco Mucho,” Alinsunurin informed the reporters.  “Sinabihan nila ako na maghahanap na lang sila ng bagong coach.”

(The group supervisor informed me that they relieved me because of my scenario of teaching NU and Choco Mucho. They informed me that they’ll search for one other coach.)

Odjie Mamon will work as interim coach for the thirty second SEA Video games in Cambodia with Brazilian coach Sergio Veloso taking on after the biennial meet and calling the pictures within the 2023 Asian Video games.

Parang on a regular basis tinanong nila ako kung ‘Coach, kaya mo ba?’ Sabi ko naman kaya ko naman kaya lang ayun nag-decide na rin sila, yung PNVF, na palitan na rin siguro ako,” Alinsunurin mentioned. “Though, wala pa akong narereceive na letter na wala na ako sa nationwide group basta extra on group supervisor lang kausap ko.”

(Our group supervisor requested me day-after-day if I can do it. After all, I answered that I can however the PNVF has made its choice. Though, I haven’t acquired a letter that I’ll not be a part of the nationwide group.)

The multi-titled males’s coach mentioned he hasn’t talked together with his gamers about his removing since their program was stopped after the thirty first SEA Video games in Vietnam, the place the group completed fifth.

“I didn’t speak to them about it however I believe they already know. After the SEA Video games, we didn’t have any communication with the gamers and we didn’t see one another. Nothing in any respect,” mentioned Alinsunurin in Filipino.
