The exodus for So called NRL Superstars has continued with the news that Salford Red Devils have announced they have parted company with powerhouse winger Daniel Vidot by mutual consent. The 26-year-old, former Brisbane Broncos Samoan International was half way into a two-year contract, having made a total of 10 appearances in his Super League debut season.
Daniel Vidot failed to make an impression in Super League, he struggled with injuries from the start and once fully fit, he found game time hard to come. He is also a very family orientated person, who has been documented as sending parts of his wage back to Australia to help support his family. It is believed that he asked for a release from his final year due to family issues.
Vidot said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time here. It wasn’t easy last season with injuries but I really gave it my best shot. It’s a decision made purely for my own reasons and has nothing to do with anyone at the club.” He continued to thank everyone for the ‘massive support’ he has received and to wish everyone at Salford the best of luck for the upcoming 2017 season.
A huge wrestling fan, Vidot joined Salford in a wave of publicity after he had trials with the WWE. He left Brisbane to join Salford with the intention to fulfill his wrestling ambitions at a later date, He is now currently in talks about returning to Queensland and is highly expected to be turning out for the Gold Coast Titans in 2017.
