FKF Premier League champions on Saturday announced that they have re-signed Harambee Stars goalkeeper Patrick Matasi.

Matasi was a free agent after leaving St. Georges of Ethiopia earlier this year.

“We would like to confirm that goalkeeper Patrick Matasi has re-joined the team on a two-year contract. He will don the Number 34 jersey,” said Tusker on their website.

“I am really happy to be back at Tusker and it’s a great pleasure for me. I was here for only three months then left and for me to come back means there is something I didn’t fulfil as a player. I am here to work and help the team prosper and achieve its targets,” Matasi says.

 “I come into a great team which has achieved a lot. Tusker has won the league and qualified to represent the country in the CAF Champions League and this means a lot to me as a player. I have to work and fight to defend the badge of the club,” added the goalkeeper.

The goalkeeper returns to Tusker, having left three seasons ago for Ethiopian club St. George.

Matasi joined Tusker in June 2018 from Posta Rangers, before leaving three months later for Ethiopian club St. George.

Tusker Chairman Dan Aduda said they are happy with the business they have done heading to Caf Champions League next month.

“We are really excited to land Matasi and he will add immense competition in our goalkeeping department. He has been here before, he knows the fabric of the club and it will not be hard for him to adjust,” said Aduda.

“As we prepare to play in the Champions League, Matasi’s experience will be vital for the goalkeeping department. He has played at big levels within club level and the national team and he is a huge addition to the squad,” added Tusker CEO Charles Obiny.
