ABDELHAK NOURI WAKES FROM COMA

ABDELHAK NOURI WAKES FROM COMA

The 21-year-old, who collapsed on the field back in July 2017, has been brought out of an induced coma and has shown signs of neurological improvement
 
The brother of former Ajax star Abdelhak Nouri has offered a positive update on the condition of the 21-year-old following his on-field collapse back in July 2017. The midfielder, who was a product of the famed academy system in Amsterdam, suffered a heart attach during a friendy against Werder Bremen. He has been left with severe and permanent brain damage.
 
Nouri is now awake again, with his family encouraged by the progress he is making through a “very difficult” time. Abderrahim Nouri told NOS: “His neurological situation is better than a few months ago. Physically it's very difficult, though. His physical condition is in decline because he doesn't move. He's lying in bed most of the time and he can't move his body on his own. Only his head. Sometimes we get him out of bed to let him sit in his wheelchair. His immune system is weakened and it fluctuates a lot. I don't want to go into details, but he has had a hard time."
 
Abderrahim also reported that his brother is displaying greater awareness of those around him, allowing basic communication to be carried out. He added: “At the beginning we couldn't communicate with him when he was in coma with his eyes closed. But later he became more awake and now there's a way to communicate with him. If you ask him to open his mouth or to move his eyebrow, then he can do that.”
 
Everyone involved in the world of sports is glad to hear this positive news.
