Azkals player Phil Younghusband says he will be patient in pursuing 'Imortal' actress Angel Locsin.
After the now infamous Tweet invitation he sent Angel Locsin before
Valentine’s Day, Phil Younghusband was finally able to go out with the Imortal
actress late last February when they went on a friendly date at a
shooting range. Phil disclosed that he definitely got to know Angel a
bit more and was pleasantly surprised at their similarities.
“She’s athletic and I’m athletic. We like competition. We went to the
firing range and I was able to beat her because we had a competition.
She is very competitive and I like competition. Whether as friends or
not, it’s good to have someone to compete with and she’s a great
person. She’s an athletic person. She’s very, very nice. She’s a great
girl and it’s hard not to have something in common with her. She’s very
nice and i want to get to know her more. Before I met her, people would
tell me she’s very nice and when I finally met her, I saw that she was
nice and really kind. Obviously I’ve been learning different things
about her like her favorite movie and favorite song. But it still takes
time to learn more about someone. But mostly she’s a very nice person.
She’s very down-to-earth considering how popular she is. She is a great
girl,” Phil said during his launch as Hush Puppies’ newest endorser at
Resorts World last March 2, 2011.
Phil said he is not bothered by the news that Luis Manzano is allegedly
trying to get back with the sexy actress. “Angel has never talked to me
about him. I’ve never met him and never spoken to him, but I hear he’s
a nice person. I don’t know the history and it’s none of my business. I
don’t want to get involved in that side. That’s none of my business.
That’s between them two and all I can do is concentrate on myself and
my relationship with her. I don’t want to waste any time thinking about
it when I don’t think there’s any need. The important thing is that I
concentrate on myself and my relationship with Angel rather than her
relationship with him. I don’t know their history. I don’t think it’s
any of my business, but hopefully the future is positive,” he shared.
Phil said that even though they have yet to have a second date, he is
happy with the way things are going between him and Angel. “I think
it’s important to be patient. She’s a very popular and busy person and
I believe you really need time to get to know someone. It doesn’t
happen overnight. Obviously this is a new way for me. I’m willing to be
patient. I like to have a good relationship with people and for me I
believe it will take time and I’m willing to be patient and take my
time and take her time,” he stressed.
Despite being busy preparing for the Azkals’ upcoming rematch in
Mongolia, Phil said that he has made it a point to keep in constant
touch with Angel. The Fil-Brit hunk has training everyday with his team
until they leave for Japan next week for another grueling weeklong
training under cold weather conditions to prepare them for the March 15
game in Mongolia. “We communicate regularly. She is very busy and I
have football and the Azkals so it’s difficult to find time to
communicate, but right now there is communication. Obviously there are
easier ways to communicate now. There’s the Internet, there’s Facebook,
and there are a lot of ways to communicate with everyone around the
world. I’m sure well still stay in touch while I’m away in Japan or in
Mongolia,” he added.
Although Angel admitted to him that she was able to watch their recent
game in Bacolod, she has yet to actually try the sport and Phil admits
he is more than willing to be her personal coach. “I haven’t spoken to
her about soccer. She said she watched our game against Mongolia. I’d
like to ask her if I could teach her or practice with her and hopefully
she’ll be interested. I haven’t aske
