Odjie Mamon on Valdez, Morado exclusion: It was out of my hands


After saying last week that they were never considered, national women’s volleyball team head coach Odjie Mamon now said that he does not know about the absence of Alyssa Valdez and Julia Morado in the team.

During Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum, Mamon said that the non-inclusion of Valdez and other stars wasn’t his handiwork.

“It was out of my hands kasi hindi na ako yung namili nun. With regards to the selection, it’s done. We are very hopeful of this team,” Mamon said.

Mamon drew flak from the fans of Valdez and Morado last week when he said over at The Daily Tribune that the two national team fixtures “were never considered.”
