Pasuwa To Stay At Dynamos

Pasuwa did not make it to the meeting held between the club’s leadership and Moses Chunga representing the Zimbabwe Soccer Coaches Union but Chunga said the former Dynamos midfielder has agreed to what came out of the meeting and will be putting pen to paper Friday.

Pasuwa could not be reached to shed light on this development but Chunga maintained the coach was there to stay at Dynamos and for that matter, for longer.

This ends the drama that had unfolded at Dynamos with the popular Harare club advertising for the coach’s job while at the same time in negotiations with revered coach Sunday Chidzambwa.

Pasuwa’s present agreement with Dynamos expires on Saturday December 31.

Dynamos chairman Kenny Mubaiwa said they will be meeting Pasuwa Friday to chart the way forward and give him the leeway to add extra manpower as Dynamos seeks to make an impression in the Caf Champions League as well as try to defend their domestic title.

Mubaiwa said they had always been willing to negotiate with their coach but issues reached a point to where the club felt they could not go beyond the limit.

Mubaiwa revealed that there have not been many changes to the previous Dynamos offer of $3 000 monthly salary though there have been adjustments in other areas which he refused to divulge.

The two parties had initially failed to agree with Pasuwa turning down the $3 000 salary and demanding a far much longer contract but as time passed Pasuwa was gradually losing grip on the matter as a number of coaches jostled for the same post while the club’s leadership took all steps to replace him.

Reports that Dynamos were now targeting Sunday Chidzambwa even made Pasuwa’s position in the crisis even weaker as Chidzambwa has a far much stronger standing in the club and has a very huge fan base.

Ironically, Chunga who asked Dynamos to have a re-look at the coach’s demands was one of those coaches linked to the same job.

Pasuwa turned himself into a hero at DeMbare after he took a struggling team and turned them into Castle Premier Soccer League champions on top of winning the major knockout tournament the Mbada Diamonds Cup.

The task ahead, though, is not all that easy as Dynamos have been drawn to face defending Champions Esperance of Tunisia in the second round of the Caf Champions League while their domestic rivals, FC Platinum have been spending heavily in new players ready for the Castle Lager title race.

Dynamos beat FC Platinum on goal difference to win the 2011 Zimbabwean championship.
