FORMER Callisto Pasuwa Warriors coach will continue his seduction with Malawi soccer giant Nyasa Big Bullets when talks between coaches and prospective superiors have reached an important stage. The 48-year-old impressed the Bullets with a short-term contract last year when he helped the Blantyre-based club win a record 14th title in the TNM Super League with two matches remaining.
A report from Malawi at the weekend indicated Pasuwa had written on paper after agreeing to a three-year contract. However, his manager Gibson Mahachi yesterday told The Herald that the agreement was imminent but there were still several solutions that needed to be resolved.
"We are still negotiating. Remember the initial agreement is only for three months and discussion for longer contract options only depends on how he does it.
"So the club has indicated that they still want their services. Obviously, they were impressed by his appearance.
"I am sure he is also satisfied with the working conditions he found there and confident to achieve more with the team.
"It's just that we are still negotiating and in the next one or two days we must conclude. They have submitted their offer and today (yesterday) we sent our reply offer and we are waiting for their response, "Mahachi said.
Pasuwa joined the Bullets in October last year with a mandate to win the title and also lead the club in the CAF Champions League.
The former Warriors coach, who was given a game to prove himself, did not disappoint when he ended the campaign with a few matches remaining.
The only downside might be the dismissal of their initial round of the CAF Champions League campaign after they were knocked out of penalties by the enduring campaigner Gor Mahia from Kenya.
Club chief executive Fleetwood Haiya was quoted by a local Malawian newspaper as saying an agreement to return Pasuwa was completed and cleared. The Pasuwa management team yesterday suggested that he speak too fast.
