MANILA – Terrence Romeo is aiming from a fresh start as he is set to suit up for the San Miguel Beermen in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup, which will start on Jan. 13 at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.
Speaking to the media after his first practice with the Beermen on Thursday, Romeo said that he has no ill feelings with his former team TNT KaTropa but has learned his lesson from the controversy he faced there.
“Nasa bagong team na ako. Kung ano man ‘yung bad memories ko sa 2018, kakalimutan ko na lang. Mag–mo-move on na lang ako,” Romeo said. “Basta gagawin ko lang ‘yung best ko sa paglalaro ng basketball. Pagbubutihan ko na lang.”
He added: “Sa mundo namin, hindi mo agad masasabi kung sino ang totoong tao eh. ‘Yung mga nangyari sa mga last team ko, siguro may mga pagkakamali ako pero kung meron man, hindi naman ganoon ka–grabe para maging ganun ‘yung mangyari.”
The former Gilas Pilipinas member refused to dwell into the details on what has transpired between him and KaTropa that led to his trade to Beermen but is still thankful to his two-conference stint with TNT.
“Kay Boss MVP [Manny Pangilinan], wala. Si Boss MVP, napakabait. Wala akong sama ng loob sa TNT. Sa mga players, wala, okay naman lahat,” Romeo said. “Kung ano man ‘yung sinabi nila sa akin, mag-mo-move on na lang ako.”
Romeo was shipped to the Beermen during the offseason after his reported falling out with his former teammates at KaTropa.
He was moved to TNT from NorthPort Batang Pier due to his feud with head coach Alfredo Jarencio./PN
