After weeks of negotiations, Nyasa Big Bullets say they have agreed “in principle” to a three-year contract with Zimbabwean coach Callisto Pasuwa.
Bullets chief executive officer (CEO) Fleetwood Haiya said Pasuwa agreed to the terms and all that is remaining is to finalise the paperwork.
He blamed the delay to seal the deal on lack of access to social media, internet and telephone services in Zimbabwe following nationwide protests over the country’s economic crisis.
“Had it not been for the communication problems being experienced in Zimbabwe, in particular internet, we could have finalised the deal by now.
“But we will get it over and done with soon,” said Haiya.
Pasuwa could not be reached for comment.
His initial two and a half months contract with Bullets expired at the end of last month.
The former Zimbabwe Warriors and Dynamos FC coach took over the mantle from Rogers Yasin and Elia Kananji in October last year and was given a target of winning the TNM Super League title as a condition for a long-term romance with the People’s Team.
He took over the team when it was already on course to win the league, but did the rest to perfection by sealing the title with a game to spare.n
