Dynamos will begin their Caf Champions League preparations on January 9 after coach Calisto Pasuwa finally signed a three-year contract with the Zimbabwean football champions as the two parties agreed on the contentious issue of the monthly salary which had stalled negotiations.
Pasuwa said he was happy to finally sign a contract after weeks of protracted negotiations. His current deal was expiring today.
“I have finally signed the contract and I am satisfied. I am now ready to start preparations for the new season. I want to apologise to the supporters over these disturbances. It’s now over and we will be starting preparations on January 9,” said Pasuwa.
Club chairman Kenny Mubaiwa announced during a Press conference at the Dynamos offices at the National Sports Stadium that they had reached an agreement with the title-winning coach which saw him penning a three-year deal.
Dynamos secretary-general Nyika Chifamba, Pasuwa and Moses Chunga, who was instrumental in brokering the deal, also attended the conference.
Negotiations between Dynamos and Pasuwa for a contract extension had broken down over the sticking issue of the salary. Pasuwa had tabled a $4 000 monthly salary which the Dynamos executive said they could not afford.
Dynamos were prepared to offer him $3 000. But after their meeting with Pasuwa and Chunga on Friday, the two parties emerged from the indaba to announce that they had finally come to an agreement.
