DINDIN Santiago-Manabat might be bringing her act to the Japan league to join her sister Jaja Santiago.
New Foton Head Coach Aaron Velez bared on Wednesday night that aside from Jaja, who is set to play in Japan V-League on October, the Tornadoes might also lose Dindin in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference this September
“Jaja and Dindin (were) offered to play in Japan tournament,” Velez said.
Before the women’s national team flew to Japan last Sunday, the 6-foot-3 middle blocker was not in present in the last set of practices of the Filipina Spikers in the country as Manabat was said to be in Japan already as early as last week.
Velez shared that the former NU star was also seeking to get an opportunity to play in Japan.
“Lumabas din na nagpunta siya ng Japan pero wala pa ‘yung official statement,” the new Foton coach said.
“So we’re just also anticipating if in case there is going to be an opportunity for Japan so we just have to be ready as well,” he added.
SPIN.ph could not reach Manabat as she is still in Japan until August 16 for their training camp building up for the 18th Asian Games Indonesia, which opens on August 18.
