San Miguel Beer’s Daniel de Guzman denies being “the tip”: Hindi ako ‘yan


San Miguel Beermen reserve center Daniel de Guzman denied involvement in a viral Facebook post where he allegedly give “tips” on his team’s game against Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings last week.

In an interview with’s Dodo Catacutan, De Guzman’s agent Danny Espiritu said that the former University of Santo Tomas center denied that he was the one making transactions in that viral post.

“I asked him point-blank if he was involved in this and he vehemently denied that he was the person doing the transaction,” Espiritu said. “Hindi raw s’ya yan at hindi n’ya alam paano s’ya na-involve d’yan.”

Espiritu added that the 30-year-old De Guzman has denied he has a Viber account as he admitted knowing the accuser.

“Ang sabi n’ya sa akin, ‘Boss, una hindi ako nagsusugal. Isa pa, may sakit ang anak ko [congenital heart disease] at never kong ipakain sa kanya ang pera na galing sa ganyan,'” Espiritu said.

“At sabi n’ya, ‘Hindi naman ako naglalaro, so paano ko magagawang mag-game fixing,'” he added. “Wala raw s’ya sinasabihan kahit sino.”
