Chot Reyes says ESPN5 made bid to air Azkals’ Asian Cup campaign, denies being advisor to TNT


Former Gilas Pilipinas head coach and ESPN5 president Chot Reyes went to social media to explain two things.

First, Reyes disclosed that his network had made a bid to the Asian Football Confederation for the rights to air the 2019 Asian Cup. However, the company’s “competitive bid” was not enough for the AFC.

“We regret to inform Azkals fans that despite all our efforts we were not able to acquire the rights to air the Asian Cup,” he tweeted.

“We put in a competitive bid that was not accepted.”

Secondly, Reyes denied that he is now part of the TNT Katropa. According to him, he was just invited during the squad’s team building event as a speaker.

“Contrary to published reports, I am not part of TNT in any official capacity,” added Reyes, who steered TNT to four championships.

“I was asked to facilitate a team session in their training camp last week, just as I have been doing w other companies and even teams in the NCAA, MPBL, etc.”
