Raizen looks to prove one thing in MPL MY: ‘Malalakas talaga ang Pinoy’


Theo “Raizen” Eusebio is eager to prove his worth after getting signed up by Malaysian squad Suhaz Esports for the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League MY Season 10.

“Sobrang sarap sa feeling and unexpected. Hindi ko in-expect na may mago-offer sakin kasi nasa amateur pa lang ako,” said the 23-year-old ML:BB tactician, who last coached Z4 Esports in the amateur scene.

Raizen’s upcoming stint in Malaysia will be his first taste of MPL action in his very young coaching career.

The pride of Bacoor, Cavite, though, believes that his past experiences with VVV Esports, Euphoria Esports, and Z4 Esports in the competitive amateur scene here in the country are already enough to help him make his mark in the MPL Malaysia.

“Amateur coaches and pro coaches is same lang naman, more on mas marami lang silang experience na nanakukuhakukuwa pero pagdating sa mga scrims, minsan yung mga pro coach ang kumukuha ng META or strategies sa mga amateurs,” explained Raizen.

Raizen became the fourth Filipino ML:BB head coach to get signed up by an overseas team.

Francis “Duckey” Glindro paved the way after coaching REVO, a team under the EVOS Legends umbrella, in 2019 before John “Zico” Dizon (Burn X Flash) and Denver “Yeb” Miranda (ONIC Esports) followed his footsteps earlier this year.

Players who also bolted to other regions are former ONIC PH stars Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol (ONIC Esports) and Jaylord “Hatred” Gonzales (Team SMG). Both players are also the first of their kind in the MPL Indonesia and MPL Malaysia, respectively.

Just like the players and coaches mentioned above, Raizen — who is set to fly to Malaysia on August 5 — is also eager to show the region that he’s in, that Filipinos are indeed world-class MPL talents.

“Gusto ko ipakita sa mga makakalaban namin sa Malaysia na malalakas talaga ang mga Pinoy.”
