Ajax’s Abdelhak ‘Appie’ Nouri sustained severe and permanent brain damage after suffering a cardiac arrhythmia attack in a pre-season friendly with German outfit Werder Bremen in July 2017.

The 22-year-old was in a coma for months but is now recovering in a house built especially for him, where he ‘sleeps, eats, frowns and burps but is very dependent.’

His father Mohammed told the Daily Mail that the family had been through a ‘serious ordeal’, adding: ‘We have to take care of him at our very best. We try to do a lot ourselves.’

Many of Europe’s top players paid a series of tributes to the youngster after his collapse.

Abdelhak Nouri (born 2 April 1997) is a Dutch former professional footballer who played as a midfielder. Nouri operated primarily as an attacking midfielder, but could also be deployed as a winger.
