BON CHAN bares he declined an offer to coach abroad

It looks like foreign teams are continuing their pursuit of Filipino Mobile Legends: Bang Bang coaches.

On Sunday morning, Blacklist International head coach Kristoffer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza — arguably one of the winningest coaches in the scene — revealed that he received an offer from an undisclosed team from MPL Indonesia.

“Yes it’s true,” BON CHAN confirmed the news to Tiebreaker Times.

BON CHAN, though, politely declined the offer. And it’s because of his two-year-old son Eren Von.

“The conversation was with a known MLBB personality. Yung reason din kung bakit ko dinecline is yung nasa convo rin, maliit pa kasi yung anak ko. Ayaw ko lumaki ng ‘di ako nakikita,” he explained.

The former SxC Imbalance roamer is the mind behind Blacklist International’s famed UBE strategy centered on stars Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna and Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario.

This scheme helped the Tier One-backed squad win back-to-back titles in the MPL Philippines Seasons Seven and Eight.

Of course, it was also the strategy that the squad used when they topped the M3 World Championships.

Aside from these, BON CHAN also steered the Philippines to its second gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games just a month ago.

The question now is, what if he gets another offer in the future?

“Di ko pa rin alam. Masarap sa Pinas e,” BON CHAN said with a laugh.
