Following one-and-done and short-lived stints with her previous club teams, the 30-year-old heavy hitter is possibly looking at a long-term home with the Flying Titans.

“Brace yourselves for another sweet conference! Dindin Santiago-Manabat, a multi-awarded powerhouse, is set to change the pace! Welcome to the Choco Mucho Flying Titans fam, Dindin Santiago-Manabat,” the announcement said. 

Santiago-Manabat had a somewhat decent personal conference performance, but her former squad Akari could only manage back-to-back seventh place finishes. 

There, the veteran wing spiker led a young Chargers lineup which included former UAAP standouts Fifi Sharma and Faith Nisperos. 

Interestingly, it will be a completely different change of pace for Santiago-Manabat as she is set to join an already loaded squad bannered by Sisi Rondina, Maddie Madayag and Honey Royse Tubino. 

The Flying Titans are seeking to end a title drought following back-to-back runner-up finishes in the past two All-Filipino offerings.  

Likewise, Santiago-Manabat’s transfer to Choco Mucho came in handy for the squad which will be picking second to the last of the first-ever PVL rookie draft early next month.
