Creamline Cool Smashers stars Alyssa Valdez and Julia Morado were not forgotten but Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) just have a different direction for the national women’s volleyball team.

According to some insiders, Brazilian consultant Jorge Edson Souza de Brito was tasked to develop the younger volleybelles in the country instead of tapping the veterans.

“(Jorge) had already prepared a long-ranged program that is focused on the progress and development of the best young players in the country,” the insider said.

It was earlier said by head coach Odjie Mamon that both Valdez and Morado were “never considered” for the composition of the Philippine team for the AVC Asian Women’s Club Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima in Thailand from 1 to 7 October.
