"Our goal was actually very modest, even if we were able to form a fairly decent team from an existing franchise," said Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. president and CEO Ramon Fernandez.
"MVP just wanted a decent middle-level finish from NLEX
, basta wala lang daw suntukan (no fistfight)," said Fernandez
, referring to the incident during the game with Rain or Shine), "and 'wag matalo (must not be beaten) by expansion teams KIA and Blackwater."
But the next time Fernandez saw MVP again, he
got another directive.
