CALLISTO Pasuwa has been elevated to the position of Under-23 head coach replacing Zimbabwean football legend Peter Ndlovu as it was revealed Warriors coach Ian Gorowa will has told Zifa they must pay him first before he can hand over his report on the Africa Cup of Nations campaign.
Ndlovu, who has been the Under-23 head coach with Pasuwa assisting him, left the post in January to take up a post at South African ABSA Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns where is now team manager.
That created a vacancy within the Young Warriors technical department.
And as the Zifa High Performance Technical Committee chaired by John Phiri moves to make changes to the national team structures they have recommended the elevation of Pasuwa as head of the Under -23 squad.
“We have recommended the elevation of Pasuwa to the position of Under-23 coach. He was the assistant coach and now that Peter Ndlovu has left, we have recommended him to the post to ensure continuity,” said Gibson Homela spokesperson of the High Performance Technical Committee.
Pasuwa is also an assistant of to Warriors with Ian Gorowa the head coach.
Gorowa’s future as Warriors coach is however now uncertain after he failed to submit a report on the doomed 2015 Afcon campaign.
The Warriors coach is demanding Zifa to pay him his outstanding salary before he submits his report of the failed Afcon qualifier against Tanzania.
Zimbabwe were eliminated from the bid for Morocco 2015 in the first round in what was their worst campaign ever.
Zifa have requested Gorowa to prepare a report for the failed bid but the coach is demanding the association to settle his dues first.
The amount Gorowa is demanding could not be immediately ascertained.
Homela confirmed Gorowa wants his money before he can hand them the report.
The committee is tasked with studying Gorowa’s report as well as making recommendations to the Zifa board for a new coach.
“The coach has made it clear that he will only give us the report if he is paid his outstanding salary. We are just trying to persuade him to do so as soon as possible,” Homela said.
The Committee has given Gorowa a 4 July deadline to submit the report.
Gorowa who was working without a contract has in the past complained that he used his personal funds for accommodation and travelling from his South Africa base into Zimbabwe for national duty.Advertisement
