MANANATILI si Anusorn “ Tai “ Bundit bilang head coach ng Ateneo de Manila women’s volleyball team.
Ito ang inihayag mismo ni Ateneo president Fr. Jett Villarin matapos na personal na makausap ang Thai mentor.
“Bundit will stay put as head coach of Ateneo Lady Eagles even as the team moves to resolve ‘internal problems,’” ani Villarin sa inilabas niyang statement.
Ginawa ni Villarin ang anunsiyo kasunod ng naganap na pulong nila ni Bundit, mga team officials ng Lady Eagles at mga kinatawan mula sa athletics office.
“There has been talks about the Ateneo women’s volleyball team and the status of coach Tai. I would like to inform everyone that coach Tai is still with the team,” ani Villarin sa kanyang post.
“In fact, I just had a meeting with coach Tai and our athletics people this morning. And I will soon be meeting with our players,”dagdag nito.
Ayon pa sa pangulo ng unibersidad, bagamat mayroon talagang problema sa team, sinisikap naman umano itong resolbahin.
“I must acknowledge though that there are issues within the team, as in all teams, and these will require some time to resolve.”
“On behalf of the Ateneo de Manila, I appeal for your patience and understanding as we try to resolve these internal issues. I also appeal your better sense to refrain from any speculation or spreading of falsehood that may besmirch the reputation of our fine players, our good coach and our school,” aniya.
