MANILA, Philippines -- Generika-Ayala parted ways with head coach Francis Vicente as the Lifesavers look on a different direction for the coming Philippine Superliga season.

According to a team insider, there’s already a shortlist of names to replace Vicente including one coming from a prominent UAAP squad.

As for Vicente, who is also the national women’s volleyball team head coach, he accepted and understood the decision of the management.

He now wants to focus his attention on steering University of the East to a good campaign in the 80th UAAP wars starting February 4.

“I see this development as a blessing in disguise. At least I can now move on and focus on UE and the national team -- if and when (Larong Volleyball ng Pilipinas, Inc. acting president) Mr. (Peter) Cayco calls me back,” he said.
