FCB Nyasa Big Bullets coach Kalisto Pasuwa has commented on the retirement of his former forward Chiukepo Msowoya.

Msowoya announced his retirement from professional football on Friday after a 20-year career.

The 35-year-old, who played for The People’s Team from 2015 to 2022, scored 67 Super League goals, winning four league titles, one Carlsberg Cup and one Airtel Top 8 Cup, before he moved to rivals Mighty Mukuru Wanderers.

He wrote on Facebook: “It has been an amazing journey filled with unforgettable moments and emotions. I want to thank the Malawi National Football Team and all the clubs that I have played for, coaches who supported me, plus teammates who have become friends.”

The Bullets head coach, who worked with Msowoya for four years, described him as one of the senior players who helped him settle and succeed with the Malawi champions when he arrived in 2018.

“One of the senior guys I met when I came to Bullets. He is one of the players who helped me a lot to settle and succeed. Very disciplined player and I worked with him for four years and he did not give me any problems in terms of discipline.

“At times, he was also helping me to nurture the youngsters who were coming in. As you know, I was a player before and one of the reasons why I had senior players in the team was to prepare them for tomorrow because, in life, you never know what will happen. After all, you cannot play football forever so you need to prepare yourself for the next chapter of your life and I hope and wish him the best of luck for the future,” said the Zimbabwean.

Pasuwa will remember Msowoya for helping the club win four straight league titles, saying that was something special for the team.

“It was very special for the club and that’s why I am saying he is one of the players who played a very vital role through his experience. He pushed the club to succeed and I am very grateful for the services [he] rendered to Bullets.”
