National Football Coaches Association (NCFA) has extended an invitation to Nyasa Big Bullets head coach Kalisto Pasuwa to become the body’s member.
NCFA delegation led by chairperson Aubrey Nankhuni met Pasuwa on Monday where, among others, they hailed the Zimbabwean tactician for transforming Bullets and also grooming local coaches like Peter Mponda, Swadick Sanudi and Heston Munthali.
Nankhuni said Pasuwa had plenty to offer to up-and-coming coaches in the country.
“This is his third season in the country having won two league titles and he is also a four-time league winner in Zimbabwe where he also took Zimbabwe National Football Team to the Africa Cup of Nations finals. We expect him to work with us as he has become an integral member in the development of football in Malawi.
“Look at the players Bullets send to the national team they are already finished products,” he said.
Nankhuni said they were discussing with Pasuwa to join the association as his counterpart at Silver Strikers Daniel Kabwe is already a member.
Pasuwa, a Zimbabwean with Malawian roots said he feels at home following the courtesy which NFCA members paid him.
“When I go to Zimbabwe I tell people that Malawi is my home I feel highly honoured here. Malawian coaches can also learn from other coaches and by researching as football has become dynamic,” he said.
