Derek Ramsay says he has no problem getting along with Phil Younghusband


072711-derek_main.jpgAlthough they once got involved in a Twitter controversy, Derek Ramsay said that he’s on good terms with Azkals’ striker Phil Younghusband. “Never naman kami hindi naging okay ni Phil. They were insisting na may issue sa amin. But before that issue, we’ve never met. So how can I judge somebody I’ve never met?”

In her tweet a few months back, Angelica criticized Phil for being too showbiz, which caused an Azkal fan to belittle Derek’s athletic ability. But the actor claimed that he has never been affected by such comments about him. “Hindi rin naman inaaway ni Phil si Angelica, so wala talagang issue.”

As a matter of fact, Derek revealed that he and Phil bumped into each other while they were on a dates with their significant others. “We met at the concert of Kylie Minogue. It’s a weird place to meet, but that’s where we met. We have no problem getting along with each other. Yeah, we had an exchange of greetings.”

Derek added that he even congratulated Phil for the Azkals’ previous wins in the World Cup Qualifiers. “I congratulated him for their well-deserved victory. Sabi ko nga maglaro kami ng football sometime. We can have a kick around. He’s an Englishman just like me so we’d have no problem relating with each other.”  

As for the rumors that Phil replaced him as an endorser of a famous tuna brand, Derek merely replied, “They got new endorsers Angel (Locsin) and Phil who are a real life couple just like Piolo (Pascual) and KC (Concepcion). That's a great marketing strategy and I don’t have to feel bad about it because I’ve had two great years with Century Tuna. It will be upsetting for me if they [replaced me because of the recent intrigues about me]. But I highly doubt it.”
