MANILA--Aldin Ayo felt a sigh of relief that the Sorsogon City police cleared him from the allegations of a training bubble conducted for his former team in the said city.
"I feel vindicated by the result of the Sorsogon City PNP investigation on the alleged IATF violations in our activity in [Barangay] Capuy, Sorsogon [City], which was duly conformed by the Office of the Governor of the Province of Sorsogon," the former University of Santo Tomas coach said in a statement on Friday night.
Despite resigning as the Growling Tigers' head coach, Ayo still got the brunt of the UAAP as the league meted him an indefinite ban.
But with the unearthing of the police report on Wednesday, he believes that this will help him a lot in getting back to the league.
"It is a big boost to my appeal for a reconsideration of the UAAP indefinite ban imposed upon me," Ayo further said.
He added that the findings of the Sorsogon City PNP, in which the police station deduced that Ayo was actually providing farm training to the players who voluntary joined him in the said city, was something that was "overlooked by the UST fact-finding committee in their findings."
The result of the UST probe led to the ban on Ayo.
