Major changes in Davao Aguilas' locker
Davao Aguilas makes changes in their squad in attempt to bolster the ever growing family of the club.
The first of six players to confirm their change of team colors, was Wes Dos Santos. “This club is very good in this country. I think it’s the best club to be part of right now. Coach already asked me to train hard and prepare for the 18th as I want to play already.” He was then followed by Patrick Deyto who is also his teammate back in Global. Not to mention, Marco Casambre, a young left-footed defender with a very bright future especially gaining a spot in the national team, who also came from Global, has signed for Davao. “Davao is one of the biggest clubs in the PFL and talagang professional yun paghawak sa club so kailangan maging professional din ako para sa club na ito. I hope na we will get to the finals and win this league and hoping we will make it to AFC next season.”
Here are the other signings of the club for this transfer window so far:
Diego, who is also a Brazilian like Wes Dos Santos, has played for club Kasetsart in 2nd Div Thailand league. “I feel very happy to come to Davao. I feel good that I am here with this strong club. I want to give my best for Davao and qualify for the AFC. I feel very good overall.”
Julian, better known as Ian, who is fresh from college football, captained his UP Maroons side to the championship just before he graduated and scored that crucial goal to help his school lift the trophy. He added, “Sobrang blessed ako na nakapasok ako sa club na ito dahil kasi ayun, magaling yun mga kasama ko and nandito yun mga best players na nasa national team and gusto ko matuto sa experiences namin.”
Ray, the first choice keeper for FEU, also recently graduated and is now eligible to play for Davao. He is someone who is very determined to learn from his peers and coaches alike hoping he will be the number 1 choice for the position of the club in the future. “I feel a little pressure. Siempre professional level and maraming magaling na kasama kaya naprepressure ako. Sana mawala yun pressure ko kasi nagustuhan naman nila yun nakita nila sa SEA Games.”
They are just few of the many more signings this club will surely get. We will have to see which signings will be proven worthy and valuable in the upcoming games after July 15 when these boys get eligible to play for the club already.
