Phil Younghusband: You can't fall out of love quickly-A A +A
Friday, January 17, 2014
FOOTBALLER Phil Younghusband does not believe one can fall out of love easily. He confessed he still has feelings for ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin.
During the recent groundbreaking ceremony of Gatorade-Chelsea Blue Pitch, the newest sport facility in Circuit Makati, Phil shared he's not the type who immediately moves on after a break-up.
Phil said he still loves Angel and he's hoping the Kapamilya actress is happy.
"Hindi ako naniniwala na you can fall out of love with someone that quickly," he said.
The footballer continued, "When you picture your future with someone you love, sometime you can't get over them (sic) that easy. I still care for Angel and she is still in my heart. I still love her and she means a lot to me. I really want what is best for her and let's be happy."
Although the break-up in October was a mutual decision between the ex-couple, Phil is still very vocal about his feelings with the 28-year-old actress. In one interview, he was quoted saying Angel is still in his heart.
"For me there's no rule with love. If you love someone that's just how you feel and that's what the heart wants," he said.
Phil confirmed he's still communicating with Angel three months after the break-up. He greeted her on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.
"We're okay. Friends pa rin kami ni Angel. Everything's good. I know 'The Legal Wife' is coming out and I wish her the best on that and I'll be watching," said Phil.
But it seems that reconciliation is out of the picture between the two.
On Wednesday, Angel revealed in the blog conference of upcoming series "The Legal Wife" that she's hoping to rekindle past romance with former flame, not with Phil but with "Minute To Win It" main man Luis Manzano.
Angel said she still has feelings for the television host, three years after their controversial split.
She said, "Andiyan 'yung love and hindi naman nawala. Pero hindi ibig sabihin noon na magiging kayo ulit or magkakabalikan kayo... (To reconcile) Sana. Sana kasi wala naman akong ibang makita."
When asked to comment on the possibility of Angel dating again, Phil replied, "As long as she's happy. I don't know."
One thing is certain, the sportsman is not yet ready to fall in love again.
"Hindi ako nag-date. Gusto ko mag concentrate sa football, sa Academy, sa pamilya ko. Yun ang priority ko talaga. I'm not ready to love again at the moment," Phil said. (Sunnex)
