PBA Commissioner Chito Salud

MANILA, Philippines—Following San Miguel Corporation’s mull over pulling out its teams, PBA Commissioner Chito Salud reassured that the group’s image remains firm in a statement Tuesday afternoon.

“Petron/SMC franchise’s reputation is solid and unshakeable. I respectfully disagree with anyone who will say otherwise, much more on the basis of an import’s individual and singular act. It just isn’t the case,” said Salud.


Salud, who slapped a lifetime ban along with a P250,000 fine on Petron Blaze import Renaldo Balkman Monday, added: “The SMC group is a great franchise run by great leaders. I know many of them personally and I only have great respect for them.”

“Mr. Cojuangco and Mr. Ang are pillars of Philippine society who i have followed and admired ever since. The PBA and their franchise have been together for a long, long time and that’s valuable in every respect.”
