FORMER Warriors defender Elisha Muroiwa has retraced his footsteps to the Tanzanian Premier League, rejoining Singida United barely six months after he reportedly terminated his contract with the ambitious side.

The 29-year-old ex-Dynamos star endured a difficult first stint at Singida United which led to his departure in December and a subsequent move to Zimbabwean Premiership side Harare City in March.

Muroiwa however failed to break into the Harare City starting lineup as coach Mark Harrison preferred the centre-back pairing of Munyaradzi Diro Nyenye and captain Raymond Uchena leading to his departure by mutual consent.

He returned to the East African country as a free agent leading to a return to his former paymasters, who announced his comeback on their twitter page.

“Welcome back Elisha … Ameshaungana na wenzake kikosini tayari kwa kuanza kazi (He joined the team and he will start training soon),” read the tweet massage posted on the club’s official twitter handle on Sunday.

The tough-tackling defender will be reunited with compatriot, central-midfielder Tafadzwa Kutinyu, who has been a revelation at Singida United since joining the club last year.

Muroiwa, who partnered Czech Republic-based Costa Nhamoinesu at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon, was a favourite of former Warriors coach Calisto Pasuwa.

The Glen View-born defender attended Prince Edward School in Harare before stints with lower division sides Harare Sporting, Highfield United and Twalumba Football Club after finishing his secondary education in 2007.

His breakthrough came in 2011 after signing for Dynamos from Twalumba Football Club.
