Exclusive: Former Wigan Warriors star opens up on why he left the club and his relationship with Adrian Lam

Former Wigan Warriors youngster Amir Bourouh once seemed to have the world at his feet at the DW Stadium.

Debuting in 2019 as an 18-year-old, the hooker looked to have all the facets needed to make a huge dent in the rest of Super League.

However, Bourouh made just nine appearances for the first-team before deciding to leave permanently for the Salford Red Devils ahead of the 2022 Super League season.

That had followed an extended loan period at the Halifax Panthers, where the 20-year-old made 11 appearances.

Bourouh, however, has told Serious About Rugby League about just why he left Wigan.

“It was a really tough decision leaving Wigan having been there for five or six years,” Bourouh said.

“An opportunity came up for me that excited me and I feel it was the right decision.”

That opportunity was, of course, to join the Red Devils, but Bourouh had a few kind words to say about former head coach Adrian Lam.

“Lammy (Adrian Lam) gave me my first team debut which i’m grateful for and I really enjoyed working with him.

“He’s a great a bloke and I’m sure that he will do well next year with Leigh.”
