Krisnan Inu opens up on Salford exit after finding new club

Krisnan Inu made his debut for FC Lezignan at the weekend, but, now he has finally spoken out about his exit from the Salford Red Devils.

Inu began his career in the NRL before switching codes in 2014 to rugby union.

A return to rugby league beckoned in June 2015 after being signed by Catalans Dragons in June 2015, before Inu signed a two year deal to join the Widnes Vikings in 2017.

A move to the Salford Red Devils came to fruition in 2019, where he played in the 2019 Super League Grand Final defeat by St Helens at Old Trafford as well as the 2020 Challenge Cup Final defeat against Leeds Rhinos.

Inu’s Salford career was seemingly in jeopardy in 2021 after he was fined four weeks salary and suspended from play for two months for social media activity.

And, now the 34-year-old has moved back to France where he enjoyed a stellar spell in his career.

Inu has over 1,100 points to his name in almost 250 career games and paid tribute to his former teammates and coaching staff as well as his wife in an emotional goodbye on social media giant Instagram.

Inu said: “Better late then never. Just wanted to send my love and appreciation to @salfordreddevilsrlfc, the members, and fans for giving me the opportunity to represent the reds jersey and the great city of salford. Huge thanks to the boys I got to share the field with. Youse definitely made me feel welcome, and made me look good on the field. Thank you to all the staff on and off the pitch, to the office crew who kept the joint together. Thank youse all. #onceadevilalwaysadevil

“Last but not least, thank you to my dear darling, supportive wife @iamcamilledlc_ for keeping me honest everyday, sacrificing sleep to make sure I’m prepared week in, week out. Thank you for being the keystone to our family. I love you, and I really appreciate you. #tillthewheelsfalloff
