Former AFL player Damian Cupido has been stood down from his South Australian football club because of a gambling addiction.

Cupido, who played 53 AFL games for Brisbane and Essendon, had been playing for SANFL club West Adelaide.

But the 27-year-old has been stood down indefinitely by the SA club because of a gambling addiction.

"He's a young man who has got a problem," West Adelaide chief executive Kym Russell told the Adelaide Advertiser newspaper on Wednesday.

Cupido, the first native South African to play AFL, had not fully participated in counselling organised by West Adelaide, Russell told the newspaper.
