Off-field antics set to end Daal's time at North Queensland Fury

Dyron Daal's partying ways look set to end his time with A-League club North Queensland Fury.

The Dutch Antilles striker has not played for the Fury since December 27 and has managed just eight starts for 16 total appearances this term.

And he is not about be rushed back into squad after news emerged that he was put partying at the Magnetic Island full moon party on Friday after his side went down to Adelaide United 8-1.

Fury chief executive Rabieh Krayem said that Daal had shown the club no respect and will not given a game until he does.

"There are a number of issues in relation to his off-field activities," Krayem told the Townsville Bulletin.

"There are no expectations, because it's common sense, that you would sit there with those teammates who aren't travelling to watch the team play, not go out and party on Magnetic Island at a full moon party.

"That typifies why coaches aren't selecting Dyron in the side and why the club is supporting those actions until such times that he changes his attitude and shows the club some respect.

"As a visa player and senior player with high expectations, it's not only what you do on the field, but do off the field, especially with so many young players.

"Dyron is not leading by example and won't be considered for selection until he shows significant improvement.

"What successes this club has had is because it functions as a team and not been about individuals. When you have one person who goes out of that team environment, it shows."
