Guiao leaves Air21

After coaching Air21 for two seasons, Joseller “Yeng” Guiao is moving on to Rain or Shine as he signed a two-year contract with the Asian Coatings Inc. franchise yesterday.

Guiao has severed his ties with Air21 and will replace Caloy Garcia at Rain or Shine, reports from the official website of the Philippine Basketball Association said yesterday. Garcia stays in the team as assistant coach.

Air21 team manager Allan Gregorio was appointed as interim coach as the team starts looking for Guiao’s replacement.

The group from Bacolod will compete against teams from Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and host Davao in the three-day tournament.

Fil-Brit booters pledge
support to Phil football

National team mainstays Philip and James Younghusband aim to nurture and develop a new generation of Filipino football players with the launch of The Younghusband Football Academy.

The two brothers are products of the successful Chelsea Football Club program in England and rose through its ranks, giving them the skills and experience that proved pivotal in the Azkals’ phenomenal campaign in last year’s Asean Suzuki Cup.

“There is a great feeling when one plays for the team and for the country, but Phil and I get a different kind of fulfillment seeing how our students learn,” James said. “The Filipino kids pick up so quickly.”
