Ex-Fighters coach Calisto Paxu will continue his flirtation with the small soccer giant Nyasa Big Bullets as conversations between the coach and his future employers have reached a decisive stage. The 48-year-old Emperor impressed Bullets for a short-term deal last year to help Blantyre-led country win the record-breaking 14th TNM Super League title with two games played.
The Malawi reports over the weekend have shown that Pasua has already put a pen on paper after accepting a three-year contract. However, his manager, Gibson Mahachi, told The Herald yesterday that the deal was close, but there were still a few free ends to deal with.
– We're still negotiating. Remember that the original deal was only three months and discussing the possibility of a longer contract was the subject of just how it was performing.
– So the club said he still wanted his services. Obviously, they were impressed by his performance.
"I'm sure he's also happy with the working conditions he's found there, and he's confident he'll do more with the team.
"But we are still negotiating and in the next one or two days we have to finish. They have submitted their offer and today (yesterday) we have sent a bid and wait for their feedback, "Mahachi said.
Vallet joined Bullets in October last year with a mandate to win the title and lead the club in the CAF Champions League.
The former Warriors coach, who received matches to prove, did not disappoint when he finished the campaign with some other games.
The only drawback is perhaps their preliminary round of exile from the CAF Champions League campaign after they were abolished by sanctions by Gheorghiya's many years of campaigning in Kenya.
Chief Executive Officer of the Fleetwood Haiya Club was quoted by local Malawi documents as saying that the Paksu's return was made and dispatched. Pavelet's management team suggested yesterday to speak too soon.
