Former Warriors coach Calisto Pasuwa had expressed his sadness over the death of the warriors and Dynamos superfan Freddy ‘Pasuwa’ Mugadza who passed on in the US on Saturday.
In his emotional farewell message Pasuwa said;
I am saddened by Mugadza’s death. Fate is so cruel, I am one man who was supposed to be at his funeral, I will do all I can though to be with the other mourners, if not physically then emotionally.
Pasuwa also explains how Mugadza earned his nickname Pasuwa. Calisto said:
There was this match at Rufaro Stadium back in 1997, when I was still new at Dynamos, and I was introduced as a substitute by coach Mhofu (Sunday Chidzambwa). He was running on the terraces shouting ‘‘Italian’’. That’s how I got that nickname.
Afterwards, he told me l was his favourite player and person. He would do virtually everything for me, from paying for my hair cut, to buying goodies. He was crazy about me. At first, I wasn’t comfortable with it but, with time, I realised he really liked me.
Mugadza reportedly went to all Demabre matches before he eventually relocated to the United States.
