Just after parting ways with the Zimbabwe Football Association last month as the coach of the national team, Kalisto Pasuwa could soon become the Malawi coach.

Reports emanating from Zimbabwe is that the Football Association of Malawi is looking to find a new manager to replace Ernest Mtawali.

Mtawali's contract was not renewed last year and FAM has inquired about the availability of Pasuwa in an aim to hand him the coaching reins.

The Flames are looking at having a new coach ahead of the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers starting in June.


According to Pasuwa’s manager, Gibson Mahachi, he confirmed that FAM had inquired about the former Warriors gaffer.

“They made an inquiry about Pasuwa’s availability. We have not engaged them yet. We hope to start the engagements soon,” Mahachi said to the News Day website.

“As for his notice, it ended on Tuesday and Zifa are aware of their obligations. We will just wait to hear from them.”

ZIFA decided against renewing Pasuwa’s contract following the team's group stage exit at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon.

On the other hand, a number of coaches have also been linked with the job including former Warriors goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar.

Former Warriors coach, Ian Gorowa, former Zambia coach, Honour Janza and Paolo Duarte are also in contention.
