Phil Younghusband says losing Angel Locsin was the worst thing that happened to him in 2013.

MANILA – Phil Younghusband considers losing Angel Locsin as his girlfriend as the worst thing that happened to him in 2013.

Months after they broke up, Younghusband said he still gets asked as to the reason he and Locsin decided to part ways. However, he just replies with a smile.

“Let them know that me and Angel are still good friends, which is the best,” he said.

Younghusband said he is fortunate to have the full support of his family and friends at this time.

Despite their breakup, the half-British football player still described his past relationship with Locsin as full of good memories.

In a previous interview, Locsin has said she and Younghusband continue to communicate even after the split. “Nag-tetext naman kami pero siyempre iwas muna magkita kasi ‘di ba paano magmo-move on kung kita ng kita?” she said.

Both said they are now trying to move on with their respective lives. But does this mean Younghusband is now open to fall in love again?

“Ngayon? Hindi ko sure,” he quickly responded.

The two celebrities became a couple on May 27, 2012, following a year-long romance that started with a tweet from the football player asking the actress out for Valentine's Day.

Throughout their relationship, Younghusband was vocal about his hopes of settling down with Locsin.

"I plan to marry Angel. When is the question. But I know Angel is the one. She's the one, and I know I want my future to be with her," he said at the time.
