Angelica Pananganiban is not impressed with Phil Younghusband's publicity stunts


030611-angelica_main.jpgAmidst her Twitter war against a rabid Azkals fan, Angelica Panganiban explained why she’s disappointed with Phil Younghusband’s venture into show business. As an avid fan of the Philippine Azkals, she was just surprised that Phil seemed to be more interested in being a celebrity rather than a football player. “Kasi kapag napapanood mo sila, lahat na lang ng mga interview nila about sa mga crush nila, yung anong date nangyari sa inyo ni ganito, anong update sa ’yo, may ribbon cutting ako na ganitoWow, ang showbiz,” exclaimed the feisty actress in an interview with ABS-CBN reporters last March 3.

Phil’s attraction towards Angel Locsin has created much hype in the past few weeks. But when asked about the issue that the Azkals heartthrob is just using the Imortal star for the sake of fame, Angelica merely replied, “Wala naman ako masasabi dun. Kaya lang ang point ko lang talaga if gusto nila mag-artista, magartista sila, iwan nila yung pagfu-football nila, ibigay nila sa mga taong buong-pusong gustong mag-football.” Angelica also refused to comment on Azkal’s star player Chieffy Caligdong’s declaration that he’s attracted to her.

Given the rising interest in football in the Philippines, Angelica explained that it would be preferable if a player gives his total commitment to the game instead of being distracted by other things. “Sabi ko nga fan kami ng Azkals. Okay sige, mag-football kayo, sisigaw ako para sa inyo. Pero kapag nag-artista na kayo, sandali lang, hindi ako manonood ng movie niyo. Huwag natin gawing stepping stone ang paglalaro ng football para mag-artista. E ‘di kung gusto niyo mag-artista e di iwan niyo yung football, magartista kayo,” she reiterated.

On the other hand, Phil clarified in a recent interview with TV Patrol that he has no intention of venturing into showbiz anytime soon because he’s still very much into football right now.
