Hundreds of Ajax fans show support for brain damaged star

Abdelhak Nouri’s house attracted Ajax fans from far and wide as they paid tribute to tragic brain-damaged ace who collapsed on the pitch with heart problems a week ago and has now suffered "permanent and severe" damage.

Hundreds of Ajax fans gathered outside the home of Nouri yesterday after it was revealed the youngster has suffered “serious and permanent” brain damage.

Nouri was taken to hospital and put in an induced coma as doctors rushed to save him. But after waking up, the youngster sadly suffered brain damage due to a shortage of oxygen.

Nouri’s brother later revealed that the midfielder can’t walk, talk or even recognise his family any more.

The chance of Nouri recovering are virtually nil, but he remains at the forefront of everyone’s minds after crowds gathered in support outside his house on Saturday. The city of Amsterdam has been left in shock after the horrendous news.

And Ajax fans packed out the road outside Nouri’s apartment, with his brother pictured at the window in tears while thanking those present for their prayers.

Speaking on Friday, Abderrahim said: “The base of the brain is mostly damaged and is not functioning. According to the doctor he will never heal. He is a great guy. Everybody, the whole world, is talking great things about him.” Abderrahim as quoted in The Sun

Sister Ghizlan added: “We keep hoping that one day all will come well with our beautiful Nouri.”
