MYLA Pablo confirmed that Motolite will acquire her remaining three-year contract from Pocari Sweat.
After multiple sources confirmed last week that Pablo already parted ways with Pocari Sweat-Air Force, the two-time Premier Volleyball League Most Valuable Player said that she will join Motolite, which will form a club team next season.
“Yeah Motolite na,” said Pablo, who was wearing a Motolite cap watching Ateneo-Motolite’s epic comeback over BanKo in thrilling five sets, 21-25, 23-25, 25-17, 27-25, 21-19, to book the last Finals ticket in the Open Conference on Sunday at the Arena in San Juan City.
Pablo added that Federated Distributors Inc. and Motolite agreed on her acquisition.
“Siguro nagmeeting sila ni Pocari and Motolite noong Wednesday okay naman yung usapan nila,” she said. “Sila yung sasalo ng three years ko. Okay naman yung usapan namin maganda naman.”
But the former National University star said that there is no official contract signing yet and the Motolite team has yet to bare the other players it plans to recruit.
“Wala pang signing contract na nangyayari kasi nga yung iba UAAP pa talaga yung ibang players so paguusapan pa namin next year pa January,” the 25-year-old spiker said. “Wala pa kong idea (sinong teammates), sinong coaches no idea pa.”
The star open spiker is elated for a fresh start with a new club team for the first time since she played for FDI’s Philips Gold in 2015 before it transferred to PVL as Pocari Sweat in 2016.
“Siyempre another club nanaman yung paglalaruan ko, another team so sana yung mga darating na teammates ko ngayon sana maging okay kami,”
Pablo, who delivered three titles for the Lady Warriors, will formally part ways with FDI and Pocari Sweat this coming week.
“Siguro next week pa ako pupunta sa Pocari for meeting siyempre kailangan ko magpaalam ng maayos sa meeting,” she said. “Siyempre gusto ko rin malaman kung ano ba talagang nangyari kung bakit nirelease ako ng ganun.”
