WARRIORS' coach Kalisto Pasuwa is set to throw in the towel in the wake of Zimbabwe's 4-2 defeat to Tunisia which saw the country exiting the Afcon finals in Gabon tournament in the group stages.

Pasuwa’s side has emerged the worst since Zimbabwe appeared at the African Nations Cup finals for the first time in Tunisia in 2004 as it crashed out of the tournament without a win to show.

In Tunisia, the Warriors, then under Sunday Chidzambwa, managed a 2-1 victory over Algeria before defeating a then World Cup bound Ghana in Egypt in 2006 under the guidance of Charles Mhlauri.

And their third appearance at the continental showpiece came to a premature end on Monday night following the defeat to Tunisia, meaning the Zimbabweans managed just a single point from their three Group B games in Gabon after a 2-2 draw against Algeria in the opening match.

According to KickOff.com, Pasuwa is set to tender his resignation upon arrival in the country from Gabon.

The Warriors coach came under a barrage of criticism over his team selection and tactics. But he has also had numerous personal battles in the job, most notably going for as many as nine months without being paid by ZIFA.

The 46-year-old oversaw the Warriors’ successful Afcon 2017 qualification campaign following his appointment two years ago, after leading local giants Dynamos on a majestic run of four league titles in a row.

Zimbabwe were due to leave Gabon on Tuesday.
