Goal.com logo Goal.com 25-07-2017

Abdelhak Nouri has been taken out of intensive care and put into medium care, his family revealed via Ajax.

The 20-year-old suffered a heart arrhythmia during a friendly against Werder Bremen in Austria and was put into an induced coma after being resuscitated on the field.

The midfielder is now breathing on his own, but his situation is largely unchanged since he was diagnosed with severe and permanent brain damage.

I've decided to wear that shirt all season under my playing shirt!! To show my support and Because I pray for you @abdelhak_nouri #nouri34 #prince7
