One of Ajax’s most promising players, Abdelhak Nouri was also one of their most inspiring. In 2017 during a friendly with Werder Bremen, the youngster collapsed during the match. The resulting studies showed he had permanent and severe brain damage.
Despite the serious nature of the injury, Nouri worked hard and began to improve. He’s out of his coma and has continued to progress. A very Frenkie de Jong moment took place when he told his former teammate where he would be heading in the off season.
