Greg Gasataya did a major favor to boost the local football scene.

The Bacolod City congressman claimed credit for the bill granting Filipino citizenship to former Negros-Ceres Football Club topscorer Bienverido Morejon Marañon, which has passed third reading at the House of Representatives.

The politiko said there’s full support to declare Marañon a Filipino “because of his representation of the country in many international matches for the past five years.”

The Senate needs to pass the bill separately and this must be signed into law for him to become a full-fledged Pinoy.
