Azkals is set to be in an controversy once again as the daughter of Former President Fidel V. Ramos – Cristina “Cristy” Ramos, a sport official, file a complaint on two members of the Philippine Soccer Team for verbally harassing her.
Aside from being the Former President’s daughter, Cristy is also the former president of the Philippine Olympic Committee; and now serves as the match commissioner of Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
On a report on 24 Oras Weekend last March 3, Cristy Ramos write a letter on Lim Kia Tong, chairman of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Disciplinary Committee telling the verbally sexual harrasment that she get from Azkal members Lexton Moy at Angel Guirado.
“… Philippine player Lexton Moy (No. 25) stood by my right side and said in a loud voice ‘must be a B cup,’ to which the players laughed loudly,” told by Ramos on her complaint letter.
And “… when I checked Philippine player Angel Guirado [No. 12] he stood in front of me purposely just wearing his briefs and made no attempts to wear shorts or cover his underwear.”
These incident happen last February 28 at Discovery Suites Pasig, one day before their friendly match on Malaysia as she made a mandatory check on the team. James Younghuband however (their team captain) was there but did not do anything to control his fellow team-mates.
Meanwhile, Azkals Manager Dan Palami and head coach Michael Weiss was not their during the event. But on his official statement Palami said that he will never tolerate this kind of behavior.
“I will look into the circumstances of this alleged incident and cooperate with any investigation.
“If it is proven that there was in fact malicious intent, I will make sure that proper sanctions are meted out,”
And “On behalf of the team, I sincerely apologize to Commissioner Ramos for the distress this situation has caused her.”
Still, eventhough Palami did make apologize and as well as the two Azkal members Moy and Guirado, Ramos said that she is consistent of putting up a complaint against the Philippine Soccer Team.
