Nouri’s Heart Undamaged
Ajax midfielder Abdelhak Nouri does not appear to have suffered damage to his heart when he collapsed during a pre-season friendly in Austria on Saturday.
Nouri, 20, suffered “cardiac arrhythmias” – heart rhythm problems – during the match with Werder Bremen.
He is in intensive care but Ajax said his “heart is functioning normally”.
A statement read: “It is however too soon to say anything about his overall recovery as his brain functions cannot be tested properly while he is asleep.”
