Despite media reports suggesting that the Zimbabwe national team coach Kalisto Pasuwa is set to retire, the mentor says he wants to stay on.

According to media reports, Pasuwa was set to step down following his country's failure to reach the second round of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

However, the News Day website has it that the coach is not planning to step down and that the ball is in the Zimbabwean Football Association's court to decide his future.

“What I can say is, it is my superiors who decide on how I have fared. So, maybe, I will hear from them whether they want to me to continue or not,” he said.


“I will also discuss with my manager, but in the end, it’s ZIFA who decide on that.

“It’s unfortunate that we have been knocked out, but the potential is there, maybe it comes back to the way we prepared.

“If you look at the three games that we played, we made mistakes in the first 20 minutes, we collapsed in the first 20 minutes and grew into the match.

“We have learnt a lesson, but I think we need to keep these guys together for a long time, we need continuity. You can see that the potential is there.”

The Warriors finished at the bottom of Group B with one point after two losses to Tunisia and Senegal whilst drawing 2-2 against Algeria.
