Roger Gorayeb harbors no ill will towards Babes Castillo

Just over a year ago, the FilOil Flying V Centre was ringing with Roger Gorayeb’s angry rants.

It was safe to say that Gorayeb was not happy to find out that he had been suddenly replaced by Babes Castillo as head coach of the National University Lady Bulldogs.

Today’s match was highly anticipated, as the two were meeting for the first time on opposite sides of the court. Gorayeb was coaching the PayMaya High Flyers, while Castillo manned the sidelines for the Bali Pure-Purest Water Defenders, Gorayeb’s team last year.

Gorayeb, usually an expressive head coach, was noticably calm throughout the match — much more concerned with the High Flyers’ uncharacteristically low energy.

When PayMaya finally put away Bali Pure-NU in five sets, Gorayeb and Castillo met at the center of the sidelines and shook hands, the friendliest encounter the two have had since a tumultuous run in National University.

“Wala naman na akong issue sa kanya. Wala na ‘yun,” Gorayeb shared. “Hindi namang puwedeng hindi tayo maka-move on.

“Lumapit siya, so kinamayan ko.”

Gorayeb still has several current NU Lady Bulldogs in his PayMaya lineup, such as Jorelle Singh and Jasmine Nabor.PVL-Reinforced-Paymaya-vs.-Balipure-Carandang-6802 Roger Gorayeb harbors no ill will towards Babes Castillo Basketball News PVL  - philippine sports news

“Siyempre, coach siya ng mga player ko ngayon. Ayoko na din na may gulo.”

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
