Pumapasok yung pagiging relaxed sa isip namin kaya sana di namin madala yun. Kasi, pag kayo ang number one, kailangan mas lalo pa naming dagdagan yung effort namin. Basta wag kaming magsasawang manalo,” he said.(As the captain ball, there will always be a part of me who will remind my teammates to not be content. We may be relaxing, but I hope we fought through it. When you’re number one, you have to be relentless in our effort.
