Nyasa Big Bullets head coach Kalisto Pasuwa says he is keen to extend his stay at the club.
The Zimbabwean tactician, who guided The People’s Team to back to back TNM Super League championships, is in his final months of his contract, which ends in March.
Pasuwa, who is currently on holiday in Zimbabwe, says he is eager to continue his rebuilding exercise with Bullets.
The coach states that it will be ideal if he continues working with the team he has been building, especially the youngsters until they gain full confidence.
“I am eager to stay for another term because there is a need to continue this project,” said Pasuwa recently during an end of season press conference held in Blantyre before he traveled to his home country.
“I have formed a very strong bond with the youngsters and it will be very important for their development if I remain with the club.
“They treat me like their father so I wouldn’t quit the club at a time when the youngsters need my guidance,” he added.
Under his tutelage, Pasuwa promoted five youngsters from Bullets reserves and brought in Peter Banda, Gomezgani Chirwa, Aziz Mwakifuna, Precious Sambani, Ben Manyozo and Luke Chima.
He won the league on the last day of the season with 70 points, a point above Be Forward Wanderers.
The former Zimbabwe national team mentor took Bullets to the CAF Champions League and got eliminated in the preliminary rounds twice; against Gor Mahia of Kenya and Zimbabwe’s FC Platinum.
Currently, his representatives are in talks with the club over a new deal as Bullets are expected to take part in the continental competition for a third consecutive year.
