Ajax Amsterdam’s Moroccan international Abdelhak Nouri, who suffered a heart attack, blew his 22nd birthday on Tuesday (April 2nd). Tributes have multiplied for the revelation of Ajax, which has not had the time and the chance to reveal itself to the general public.
Several football stars have wished the midfield a happy birthday and a good recovery. Among these stars, we can mention Ousmane Dembélé, Lasse Shone, or Cristiano Ronaldo. The latter has just published a video to wish a happy birthday to the so-called “Appie”.
“I wish you a happy birthday and a speedy recovery. I wish the best for you guy. Take care of yourself. We stay in touch,” said CR7.
Recall that in July 2017, during a preparatory match against Werder Bremen, Nouri collapsed in the field and was immediately flown to the hospital. The player, who played with Ajax since the age of nine, suffered serious and permanent brain damage.
A few months later, Nouri’s brother confirmed that slight progress had been made regarding the player’s state of health, but he is very unlikely to be able to play football again one day.
