PETRON forward Danny Idefonso's contract is set to expire, but he is hopeful of staying with the only team he has played for in his entire PBA career.
“Kung ano ibibigay sa akin ng management, okay lang din sa akin. Depende eh, pero sana maging maayos din ang ipapakita ng team,” the two-time PBA MVP said when Spin.ph caught up with him on Tuesday before his regular weights training.
The 36-year-old Pangasinense's contract with the Boosters expires by the end of August, but he is hopeful of playing at least another year for the SMC franchise, with which he started his PBA career in 1998.
Ildefonso is now undergoing rehab after going under the knife at the University of Santo Tomas Hospital for a dislocated left shoulder last February.
The 6-foot-5 veteran’s immediate goal is to be fit for the Boosters' campaign in the season-ending PBA Governors Cup which kicks off on August 14.
The Boosters have so far compiled an anemic 14-17 win-loss card overall during the first two conferences of the PBA’s 38th season.
Ildefonso, who dislocated his left shoulder in an elimination-round match against Barangay Ginebra last October, sat out the entire Commissioner’s Cup but acted as the trainer of top rookie June Mar Fajardo.
