FORMER Dynamos and Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa could be set for a surprise move to the Malawian premiership amid reports he has agreed terms with Nyasa Big Bullets to become the new coach for the league leaders.
Pasuwa’s future has been subject of constant speculation since leaving the Warriors job at the end of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals held in Gabon.
Recent local reports have strongly linked him with a move to Ngezi Platinum Stars following the recent departure of Tonderai Ndiraya.
However, according to reports from Malawi on Tuesday, Pasuwa, who was linked with a coaching role at his former club as a player Be Forward Wanderers early this year, has been in negotiations with Bullets since coach Rodgers Yasin and his deputy Elias Kananji sacking last week.
According to the Malawian publication, “an agreement is now in place for the former Zimbabwe international to take charge at People’s Team.”
“He is yet to sign the contract which he has taken it to his lawyers in Zimbabwe for their perusal,” the Nyasa Times further reported.
Pasuwa was recently part of the coaches involved in the Shield-Chelsea campaign, an innovative football talent search programme, which was saw one local player earning a place into the Africa XI squad to face the Chelsea Legends last month.
The 47-year-old coach has built quite an impressive profile for himself after guiding Dynamos to four straight league titles and then taking the Warriors to their first AFCON finals appearance in more than a decade.
His exploits have previously attracted the attention of the Malawi Football Association leadership, who wanted him to take over as their country’s national team coach, but negotiations between the two parties failed to end in a deal.
