Phil Younghusband keeps positive mind, unfazed by issues-A A +A
Monday, August 11, 2014
PHIL Younghusband shared that he remains loveless now but he is not in a hurry to find a girlfriend, since he is focused on football.
In October, the 27-year-old will mark his first year being single after his high profile relationship and break-up with actress Angel Locsin.
Younghusband said he now has more time to spend with family, friends and to concentrate on his game.
"I have more time to think of my football nowadays. Maybe last year there were things in my mind that took me away from football, not that it's a bad thing, but now when I go home I think only about football," he said during an interview at the "Pangarap Kong World Cup" launch.
The Fil-Brit added that what he went through after the breakup was not easy, but he is happy they have both moved on and he has no regrets.
"I was happy then and I am happy now. I don't regret anything. I'm happy of the experience and I look forward to the future," he said.
It also helped that he rarely watch television or check his social media feeds. He usually shrugs off news mentioning his name, including the recent accusations that he fathered a child with an actress' daughter.
"I haven't seen a lot of it. I don't actually watch a lot of TV other than football. Because if maybe I'm watching it, it might be more difficult," he said.
"I think I've done quite well in making sure that I've kept my priorities and I've kept myself away from that side of things. At the moment it does not really affected me because I've stayed away from it," he added.
When asked if there is truth to rumors that he is dating sexy actress Bangs Garcia, Younghusband said they are hanging out but nothing serious.
"Me and Bangs, we are friends and we are hanging out. We have same group of friends as well," he added.
News of the two dating came out when the athlete was spotted at the FHM 100 Sexiest event held last month at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Phil clarified that he was there with friends and not just for Garcia.
Is he still open in dating another showbiz personality? The footballer replied: "I don't know. One thing I learned with love is there are no rules. What happens happen and you can't force anything. You can't try to make things happen and you just have to wait and see." (Sunnex)
