Nyasa Big Bullets say they are finalising a new contract offer for their coach Callisto Pasuwa which expired sometime back.
The People’s Team’s chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said in an interview that they are not worried over the Zimbabwean tactician’s future.
He said: “The coach is willing to stay. There is no pressure, we are all moving in the same direction.
“A draft contract is almost ready and it is being looked at. After all, the season is not over yet as there is still the Airtel Top 8 coming up.
“So, we wouldn’t want to divert his attention. That will be looked into at an appropriate time.”
Pasuwa’s local representative Felix Ngamanya Sapao said the coach’s contract expired in February, “but under the conditions set by Fifa due to Covid-19, he has continued working. He is getting his pay and he is happy”.
However, Sapao said one of his client’s conditions for accepting a new offer will be to release old guard and replace them with promising players from the reserve side.
He said: “He gave that condition at the start of the season to club management, but it was not fulfilled. So, the renewal of his contract will partly be dependent on that.”
The former Zimbabwe National Football Team and Dynamos coach recently guided the People’s Team to their third successive TNM Super League title.
He was hired by Bullets in 2019 to replace Rogers Yasin and took charge of the final seven games.
In 2019, Bullets defended the title under his tutelage before winning it once again this season.
