Kung nandoon ako eh di ako na (ang coach) -- De Jesus on possible national team stint

“Kung nandoon ako eh di ako na.” De La Salle University head coach Ramil De Jesus was playful with his answer when reporters tried to get confirmation on rumors circulating that he will be taking the reins as women’s national team mentor. But the 10-time UAAP champion coach admitted that he met with Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. twice regarding the country’s governing body of the sport to form a national team that will participate in two major international tournaments this year. “Nag-meeting kami, actually nakadalawang meeting eh. Noong una nagpapakita ng interest na gusto akong i-appoint and then ‘yung second pumunta ako doon pero wala naman akong napagtapusan o napirmahang contract wala naman, wala pa sa ganoon,” said De Jesus. LVPI intends to send a squad in the Jakarta Asian Games on August 18 to September 2. The Philippines will also participate in the AVC Asian Cup slated on September in Thailand. De Jesus is not new to handling the national team.
