YOUNG Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa missed training on Tuesday ahead of the decisive Under-23 African Championship qualifier against South Africa in Kwazulu Natal, on Saturday following reports that he had not been paid his outstanding salaries by Zifa.
Pasuwa’s assistant Nation Dube and goalkeeper’s coach Tembo Chuma took charge of the training session at Greendale Sports Club on Tuesday. 
Dube said he was not authorised to speak to the press when asked for comment. 
Zifa communications manager Xolisani Gwesela refused to be drawn into commenting on Pasuwa’s whereabouts.
Pasuwa is owed nearly $10,000 by Zifa as he had not been paid since he was appointed to the post. 
The football mother body had promised to pay him his dues on his return from Comoros but they have not lived true to their promises.
Zimbabwe who were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Harare a week ago now need a win or at least a draw better than a 1-1 draw to qualify.
The winner between the two sides joins hosts Senegal and six other African countries at the African Under-23 Championships in Dakar, in December which will serve as the qualifiers for the 2016 Olympics.
The top three nations at the tournament will automatically qualify for the Olympic Games to be held in Brazil next year.Advertisement
