Ajax star Abdelhak ‘Appie’ Nouri has stunned doctors by miraculously waking up after spending two years and nine months in a coma.
The midfielder sadly suffered severe and permanent brain damage when he collapsed on the pitch during a cardiac arrhythmia attack in the summer of 2017.
The 22-year-old awoke from his coma in the summer of 2018 and now ‘sleeps, eats, frowns and burps’ but remains bedridden and ‘very dependent’ on his family members.
This week, Nouri’s brother has told Dutch outlet De Wereld Draait Door that his younger sibling is ‘doing well’ in a house that has been designed to cater for his specific needs.
Abderrahim, who communicates with Abdelhak through eyebrow signals and smiles, says that the former midfielder has even started watching football again.
