Malawi-based gaffer Kalisto Pasuwa has refused to rule out a ‘possible’ return to coach in Zimbabwe after his tenure with Nyasa Big Bullets.

Pasuwa believes one day he might find himself retracing his footsteps to take charge of the Warriors or his childhood club and former paymasters, Dynamos.

“You never know with life, I might come I might not come, but that’s life. I can’t deny (returning to coach in Zimbabwe) because it is my home and it will always remain in my heart,” he told during a High-Performance symposium held by Major Sports Consultancy in Harare recently.

Pasuwa left Zimbabwe for Malawi five years ago, when he joined giants FC Nyasa Big Bullets in October 2018.

It was after the Great Khali as Pasuwa is nicknamed, had parted ways with the Harare giants Dynamos.

The legendary Dynamos coach led the club to four successive league titles between 2011 to 2014.

Pasuwa also led the national team to a third appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in 2017.

He beat Malawi 3-0 at National Sports Stadium in 2016 to help Zimbabwe break a 10 year jinx and qualify for the AFCON tournament hosted by Gabon.

The Warriors had last qualified for the major continental competition in 2006 under the tactician Charles Mhlauri.

However, the 53-year-old gaffer had a disastrous campaign, seeing his winless team crashing out at the group stage after losing twice and drawing once.

As a result he was shown the exit door by his employers (ZIFA) upon his return from the prestigious competition.
