He was overlooked by the Wellington Phoenix, but he's glad to be back at Portland again.

Tuiloma says a change of coach has presented him with a fresh start.

He found opportunities hard to come by last year, after deciding to leave French giants Marseille, where he had spent the first four years of his professional career.

His goal was to secure a contract extension, which he has done by signing a new one-year deal, and the arrival of new coach Giovanni Savarese, could be the much needed boost to move Tuiloma's career forward.
