Veteran Giant Tendai Mzungu has announced his retirement from the game.

Mzungu will join back up with Fremantle as their inaugural coach of the club's Next Generation Academy, while also serving as the club's runner in 2018.

The 31-year-old played 102 games for Fremantle, including nine finals, between 2011 and 2016 before playing four matches for GWS in 2017.

GWS confirmed the news on Thursday, alongside the three Giants - Nathan Wilson, Devon Smith and Matt Kennedy - who are exploring trades.

Mzungu told Fremantle's website he was looking forward to the new opportunity.

“I’m really excited to have this opportunity. I have some fond memories from my playing days at Fremantle and I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter in the working world,” he said.

“I’m sure a lot has changed even in a year. There are some great people at Fremantle and I’m excited to reacquaint myself with the place and see the brand new facility.

“It’s an exciting time for both my partner and I.”
