Ginebra coach Agustin feels pressure to deliver
MANILA – Former PBA superstar Ato Agustin is feeling the pressure to deliver for the Barangay Ginebra squad as their new coach.
“Yes, may konting pressure especially iba itong Ginebra e,” the 1992 MVP said in Gerry Ramos’ Spin.ph report. “Pero hindi ko na lang iniisip `yung pressure.”
Agustin said the team’s runner-up finish in the recent Commissioner’s Cup was one of the reasons why he needs the Gin Kings to rack up wins.
“Understood naman `yun, galing sila sa Finals last conference so kailangan i-sustain mo `yung showing,” he said.
The pressure became even stronger when Barangay Ginebra lost its opening game to sister team Petron Blaze, a team Agustin used to coach.
The Gin Kings bowed to the Boosters, 95-101.
“Siyempre kahit interim lang [ako] gusto ko maging maganda pa rin ang resulta,” said Agustin.
