Harare - With a foot into the 2017 Gabon Afcon tournament, Warriors coach Callisto Pasuwa is reportedly being lured by Tanzanian giants Simba Sports Club however, the gaffer says he remains committed to his current job.  

Cash-rich Simba SC, one of the two big boys of Tanzanian football, have been stalking Pasuwa.

And a delegation from the club was recently in Harare where preliminary negotiations were conducted to try and lure the coach from his job with the Warriors.

Simba SC are believed to be ready to pay Pasuwa a salary of $20 000 a month, making him one of the highest-paid coaches on the continent, while also providing him with generous incentives.

This also includes paying for the fees of his kids at an exclusive private school in Dar-es-Salaam.

Pasuwa will also be given a four-bedroom flat in an upmarket area of Dar-es-Salaam as part of the package should he agree to dump the Warriors and return to club football, more than a year-and-a-half after his last flirtation at this level of the game with Dynamos.

The coach’s stock has exploded in recent months after he ended the Warriors’ lengthy wait for a place at the African Cup of Nations finals with the senior national team winning a group, which featured West African giants Guinea, with a game to spare.

The Warriors are also unbeaten in their five 2017 Nations Cup qualifiers and have scored seven goals, conceding none, in their last two qualifiers.

Reports that Pasuwa could be tempted from his job, where his salary is $7 000 a month and is paid by ZIFA benefactor Wicknell Chivayo, have unsettled the coach’s employers at the National Football Association of Zimbabwe.

Yesterday NAFAZ president Philip Chiyangwa called for an urgent meeting with Pasuwa to discuss the reports which first emerged two weeks ago and have since been buttressed by the move by the Tanzanian club to send representatives next week to try and tempt the coach from his job.

Pasuwa said yesterday, after his meeting with Chiyangwa, that he was not aware of the offer from Simba SC, had never discussed anything with the Tanzanian club or their representatives and reiterated his allegiance to the Warriors.

“I have heard about all these stories and today (yesterday) I had a meeting with the (NAFAZ) president (Chiyangwa) where I told him my position,” said Pasuwa.

“Probably they have talked to my manager, (Gibson Mahachi) but it has not come to my attention yet. Of course, he (Mahachi) receives numerous calls from different clubs making enquiries, it’s normal.

The Tanzanian side, who are home to former Dynamos midfielder Justice Majabvi, sent their representatives to watch the Warriors’ last 2017 Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi which Pasuwa’s men won 3-0 to seal their place in Gabon next year.

“You can go and tell that Tanzanian club that I will not release our senior national team coach to them under whatever circumstances and they can go onto the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in their efforts to get him and still they will not succeed,” said Chiyangwa.

“We have the rights to Pasuwa because we have a contract with him and we are working very well together and the fruits of our partnership can be seen by our qualification to Gabon." - The Herald
