MANILA--Ginebra governor Alfrancis Chua insisted that there is no burned bridge between him and Greg Slaughter even if the latter admitted that there was some miscommunication among them amid his surprise decision to take a hiatus from the PBA.

"There is no bad blood," Chua told Pauline Verzosa of CNN Philippines on Tuesday night.

Earlier in the day, Slaughter tweeted a long post apologizing to Chua and San Miguel Corporation chief Ramon Ang and clarifying what led to his sabbatical.

Chua admitted that he has yet to see Slaughter's statement.

However, upon learning about it, Chua reacted, "That's good.... I think he's mature enough to realize that what he did is wrong."

Despite what seemed like an acceptance of the apology, Slaughter may have to wait for a little while to see if he can return to the Barangay as Chua is making the most of his Christmas break.

"I've been very busy with work the past few weeks and I am looking forward to just enjoying the holidays so hindi ko muna iniisip yan," he further said. "Maybe after the holidays, we can talk in person."
