Self-confessed Azkals fan Angelica Panganiban explains why she's disappointed with Phil Younghusband's showbiz inclinations.
Amidst 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
about sa mga
crush nila, yung anong
date nangyari sa inyo ni ganito, anong
update sa ’yo, may
ribbon cutting ako na ganito
… Wow, 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.
