TNT KaTropa head coach Nash Racela is “on leave”, according to reports Sunday afternoon – just hours before the Texters’ match with the Columbian Dyip in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup.
Racela and TNT have been struggling in the season-ending conference. Across four games, the once-perennial contenders now sit low in the team standings with a 1-4 card.
Yesterday, Racela went to social media platform Instagram, saying that he was not able to attend TNT’s practice in the afternoon for undisclosed reasons. It was surprisingly held at the Meralco Gym instead of the Moro Lorenzo Gym.
As per Tiebreaker Times’ source, assistant coach Eric Gonzales will be the one calling the shots for the Texters against the Dyip, who are hungry to end their 0-4 slump.
And in a tweet, Racela expressed his delight over the opportunity his good friend is getting.
Closed door means open windows. Our God is faithful.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
