Jessy Mendiola confirms Azkal Paulo Pascual invited her to watch their game


072811-jessy_main.jpgLooks like Jessy Mendiola is following in the footsteps of her idol Angel Locsin after she confirmed that a member of the Azkals football team, Paulo Pascual, communicated with her via a popular social networking site. Paulo was a former goalkeeper in the University of San Carlos Cebu before he was commissioned to be part of the Philippine Azkals.

She said that a friend told her about Paulo’s admiration for her. Jessy has yet to meet the football player. “Kilala ko siya via friend lang,” Jessy said. And just like the way Phil Younghusband first made contact with now rumored girlfriend Angel via Twitter, Jessy confirmed that Paulo also sent her a message on Twitter to watch one of the Azkals’ games. “Tinweet na nga niya [ako]. ‘Hello, Jessy.’ In-invite niya ako sa games nila. Siyempre may mga pagkakataon na may mga trabaho. Sinabi ko, ‘Hello, thank you for inviting me.’ Siyempre nag-explain ako. Alangan naman isnabin ko sa Twitter.”

The mestiza actress also revealed that she informed Angel about this. “Ka-BBM [Blackberry messaging] ko nga si Miss Angel, tapos tinanong ko, sabi ko, Ate Gel, ano’ng masasabi mo dun sa nababanggit na crush ako [ni Paulo]? [Sagot ni Angel] ‘Naku girl work ka muna.’ Sabi niya sa akin.

Though Jessy’s description of her ideal guy fits Paulo—tall, dark and handsome, the young actress suggested that it would be better if Paulo focus on their games, in the same way that she wants to concentrate on her career.

Asked if she is open to meeting Paulo in person, Jessy answered, “Sa ngayon wait na lang muna. Oo, definitely I’m very, very flattered nung sinabi niya na crush [ako ni Paulo].”

Jessy also downplayed the comparison of her love life to that of Angel’s since her idol is reportedly already in a romance with Phil. “Iba naman ‘yung sa kanila [ni Phil] may namamagitan na yata sa kanila.”
