    ARWIND Santos and Terrence Romeo may have a few run-ins in the past, but Santos vowed to welcome Romeo with open arms at San Miguel Beer.

    Santos said he is happy to have his fellow Far Eastern University alumni as a teammate at San Miguel, convinced the flamboyant guard will be able to contribute to the team’s bid for a fifth straight Philippine Cup crown.

    “Marami tayong naririnig against him pero ka-Tamaraw natin ‘yan,” said Santos following the Beermen's practice on Wednesday. “Ako naman, hindi naman ako ganun kasama sa kapwa ko ka-Tamaraw.

    "Kilala naman ako ni Terrence pero hindi pa kami nagsasama. First time naming magkasama sa team. Ang wish ko, maganda ang pasok niya, makatulong siya sa team at matulungan niya ‘yung team.”

      Romeo was traded to San Miguel for Brian Heruela, David Semerad and a future first-round pick amid reports of spats with teammates at TNT Katropa, where players reportedly petitioned that he be shipped out.

      Santos said Romeo’s stint with San Miguel is a perfect opportunity to prove critics wrong.

      “Nakakalungkot din ‘yung alam mong talented ka, magaling ka, tapos parang naririnig natin na last chance na niya ‘yung team namin. Nakakalungkot din kasi kahit papaano, kaming mga players, maliit lang mundo namin. Ayaw din namin na magkakaaway kami or may galit kami sa bawat isa.

      “Siguro kung ‘yun man ‘yung naririnig at nababasa natin sa social media, sana gawin niya itong dahilan, itong pagpunta niya sa amin sa team, gawin niyang dahilan na mali ang tao, ipakita niya na mali sila. Paano niya mapapakita ‘yun? ‘Yung kailangang maabot namin ‘yung goal namin. Kasi kami, gustong-gusto naming manalo,” said Santos.

      Santos said he will be supportive of Romeo as long his actions will benefit the team.

      “Ilang beses na rin kami nagkakainitan ni Terrence. Sabi ko nga, maliit lang mundo namin. Ngayon, magkasama kami. Depende na lang kung magkakainitan kami sa team, depende na lang ‘yun,” Santos said in jest.

      Turning serious, Santos continued: “Ako naman, basta ako, hindi ako gagawa ng isang dahilan, wala akong dahilan para kumprontahin ko siya bilang captain. Nasa tama lang ako. Kung tama ginagawa mo, susuportahan kita. Dito lang kami sa likod mo. Pero kung mali ang ginagawa mo, marami kang masasabi sa 'yo na tigilan mo na ‘yan.”

      “’Yung mga history na naririnig natin, mahirap paniwalaan. Kami hindi kami naniniwala maliban na lang siyempre makakasama namin, eto ‘yung basehan. Makikita namin kung totoo ‘yung mga nababasa natin. Pero kung hindi naman, magiging maganda ang resulta. Lahat ng maling comment sa kanya o duda, mabubura lahat ‘yun,” said Santos.
