Coach Josh pleads to NXPE bashers: Kami na lang mga coaches ang i-bash

Nexplay Evos Coach Joshua Alfaro had a message for the team’s supporters and detractors after the squad secured a much-needed 2-0 victory over Smart Omega. The coach expressed his wish that the team’s coaches be the target of criticism rather than the players, who have struggled to adjust to the pressure of playing in the professional league.

Coach Joshua spoke candidly about the challenges faced by his young players, many of whom had previously enjoyed success in the amateur ranks. Despite having won 11 titles at the amateur level, the players are still adjusting to the demands of professional competition.

This was evident in their Week 2 loss to Onic Philippines, where they failed to capitalize on an early lead and fell to a late-game surge by their opponents.

“Sa mga supporters and sa mga nambabash sa kanila, mas okay siguro na kami na lang mga coaches ang ibash most of the time,” Alfaro said.

The coach’s comments reflect the reality faced by many young athletes as they make the transition from amateur to professional competition. The pressures of playing at the highest level, combined with the expectations of fans and the media, can be overwhelming for even the most talented and experienced players. For rookies like those on the Nexplay Evos roster, the challenge is even greater.

Despite these difficulties, the Nexplay Evos team has shown promise in their inaugural season. The squad boasts a talented roster of players who have the potential to make a mark in the professional league. However, they will need time and support to develop their skills and adjust to the rigors of professional competition.

In this regard, Coach Joshua’s comments are both understandable and admirable. By taking the heat off his players and directing it towards himself and the coaching staff, he is showing leadership and protecting his players from undue criticism.

“Kahit rookie sila, baguhan sila, andun yung pressure sa kanila. And mas kaya naming itake, as the management, yung pressure,” Alfaro added.

“Sana pag may mga nambabash sa mga players namin, kami na lang siguro. Kaya namin itake yun.”
