One of the more successful clubs in Premier Volleyball League history is set to make its return, as PLDT will break its two-year absence from the league.

Roger Gorayeb, who left his job with Bali Pure, will also return to his old post in the PLDT to serve as its head coach for the Reinforced Conference on April 1.

“I’ve just talked to Bali Pure and I explained that I have no choice but to leave since PLDT is my mother team,” said Gorayeb, who led PLDT to the 2015 Open and Reinforced Conference titles.

Former league MVP Grethcel Soltones, Lizlee Ann Pantone, and Alyssa Eroa are just some of the players Gorayeb will bring in for PLDT’s return.

A player Gorayeb won’t have with him, however, is four-time MVP Alysa Valdez who is suiting up for Creamline.
