FC Platinum president George Mawere has dismissed speculation suggesting Callisto Pasuwa is set to replace Norman Mapeza as the head coach.

Mapeza left the Zvishavane-based side on Thursday after spending five years at the club where he won two successive league titles.

His departure quickly linked Pasuwa who is coaching Big Bullets in Malawi with the vacant position.

“It’s all fake news,” Mawere told the Herald.

Pasuwa’s agent, Gibson Mahachi, also said his client would commit himself to fulfilling his contract in Malawi.

“Pasuwa is contracted at his Malawian club and that remains the story so far and any suggestions otherwise are not true,” said Mahachi.

“He has a contract until December and he is fully focused on the club and he is not the kind of person who just makes abrupt decisions.

“Of course, given he is a quality coach, he will always be linked with jobs, especially here in Zimbabwe, when such vacancies become available but what I can tell you is that Pasuwa is fully committed to his work in Malawi.”
