The Dutch midfielder rose through the ranks at the youth system at Ajax before moving up to the senior squad in 2015.

Abdelhak Nouri later went on to represent the Dutch giants in nine competitive games. However, his promising career was later cut short during his side’s pre-season tour of the Austrian Alps in July 2017.

The Dutch midfielder rose through the youth ranks at the Johan Cruyff Arena before graduating to the senior squad in 2015.

He went on to feature in nine competitive first-team appearances for Ajax, before his career was cruelly cut short during the club’s pre-season tour of the Austrian Alps in July 2017.

Abdelhak Nouri was confirmed well by his brother, Abderrahim Nouri on a special edition of the show, De Wereld Draait Door.

“He has not been home very long, we take care of him there now,” Abderrahim said. “I must say that since he is at home it is going much better than before in the hospital. 

“He is aware of where he is, he is back in a familiar environment with his family. He’s no longer in a coma. He’s just awake.

“He sleeps, he sneezes, he eats, he burps, but it’s not like he gets out of bed. He’s very bedridden and still very dependent on us.

“On his good days, there is a form of communication, for example, confirmation with his eyebrows or a smile. But you notice that he can’t last that very long.

“We talk to him like he’s not sick. We take him into our conversations and we watch football with him in the living room, for example. 

“Then he watches. You notice that he likes that very much. He often shows emotions. Sometimes he is emotional, but often there is also a smile. 

“That does us good. That makes you really appreciate a smile.”

His father Mohammed added: “We have to take care of him at our very best. We try to do a lot ourselves.”
