Harare City target Pasuwa

Spread This News

HARARE CITY FC are reportedly considering luring outgoing Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa to head their technical team ahead of the start of the 2017 Castle Lager Premiership campaign.
With their coach Mkhuphali Masuku short of the required minimum qualification of a Caf A Licence stipulated by Zifa for all Premier Soccer League coaches, the Sunshine City Boys are said to be targeting the Warriors gaffer to lead them in this campaign.
Masuku, who had been elevated to the top post after the club parted ways with Moses Chunga at the end of last term, is a holder of a Caf B Licence.
Although club secretary Mathew Marara maintains that they would stick with Masuku, they are said to be considering hiring Pasuwa to steer the ship.
Pasuwa’s manager, Gibson Mahachi, said, “What I know is that the coach is serving his notice. He was given a one month notice and after that we will then see what happens.”
Pasuwa enjoys a good working relationship with Masuku. They have been working together for a year in the national team set up where Masuku has been one of the assistant coaches together with Saul Chaminuka.
The former Dynamos coach qualified the Warriors to their third African Cup of Nations finals in Gabon – having endured ten years of waiting to dine with the big boys at the continental table.
He became the first coach to qualify Zimbabwe to the nations cup finals with a game to spare. But the team crashed out at the group stage without a win having bravely held fancied Algeria to a 2-2 draw in the opening match. They were beaten 2-0 by Senegal in the second match before being blown out of the tournament following a 4-2 defeat to Tunisia in the last match.
The performance by the Warriors, however, did not satisfy Zifa who have since decided against renewing the coach’s contract, opting to look elsewhere ahead of the start of the 2019 African Cup of Nations finals.
Zifa has given Pasuwa a one month notice. His contract ends on February 28.
Pasuwa led Dynamos to four successive league titles in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and Harare City are said to be eager to take him on board in their bid to claim the championship which has eluded them for years.Advertisement
