Kalisto Pasuwa wins coach of the year award after treble in Malawi
Former Dynamos and Zimbabwe Warriors gaffer Kalisto Pasuwa has scooped the coach of the year award in Malawi for the 2022 season.
The award comes after the 52-year-old tactician guided Malawian giants Nyasa Big Bullets to a treble last season.
He propelled the Blanytre based side to a pre-season Charity Shield in March at the start of the season and went on to win Malawian FA Cup in October before completing the treble mid November after winning the championship title.
Last season’s title was Pasuwa’s fourth on the trot since joining Bullets in 2018.
The Great Khali as Pasuwa is nicknamed extended his stay at Bullets in May after putting pen to paper on a new three year deal set to expire in 2025.
“Nyasa Big Bullets FC is delighted to announce that Kalisto Pasuwa has signed a new contract to extend his commitment with the club,” Big Bullets confirmed Pasuwa’s stay in a statement.
“The head coach has signed a three-year deal to remain at the helm of The People’s Team until 2025.”
Reacting to the contract extension with the four time champions said Pasuwa:
“I’m very happy to have extended my contract with Nyasa Big Bullets. It has been very exciting to work with a team like Bullets.
“As you know we have a new project that we are working on. I want to see young boys coming in to play senior football with maturity.
“So with the extension of my contract I hope everything will go well along with the technical team that I’m having, we are hoping for the best this year (2022).”
