Foton, Branislav ready for PSL’s biggest conference
Foton has been the ruler of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix Conference and head coach Moro Branislav has been preparing his team to keep it that way this 2017.
“My opinion is, Foton will bring a very big surprise this conference,” said Branislav Wednesday during the pre-season press conference atr Viking Venue. “I’ve been preparing my team and we’ll see how we’ll finish so good luck to all the other coaches.”
The Tornadoes are shooting for their third straight title, but they have to do it without 2015 Grand Prix MVP Lindsay Stalzer, who was instrumental in their last two championships.
Stalzer has jump shipped to Petron, the team Foton beat twice for the titles, in a move which Branislav respects.
“We respect all players, and thanks to Lindsay because she played very hard last year for Foton.”
Helping Branislav in his quest for a third straight Grand Prix title are Dragana Perunicnic, Sara Klisura, and libero Katarina Vukomanovic.
Foton will defend its title against eight other teams in the biggest Grand Prix to date.
This season’s Grand Prix will feature nine teams—Foton, Petron, Cocolife, F2 Logistics, Generika, Sta. Lucia, Iriga, Cignal, and guest team University of Santo Tomas.
