After articles announcing the release of Abdelhak Nouri from a coma, the former Ajax player, the sportsman’s father, wanted to clarify the situation and denounced the “fitna” caused in this month of Ramadan.
Mohamed Nouri, who is currently in Morocco for a family visit, did not appreciate the press articles mentioning that his son had just come out of a coma, citing false statements by the brother of the Moroccan-Dutch player.
In a statement to MoroccoLatestNews, the player’s father said that none of his children made a statement to the press denying the information disseminated and stressing that it is “fitna” especially since his phone is not hasn’t stopped ringing.
“I was surprised by a new exit in a newspaper. I have not read it but I have been contacted by several people asking me about Abdelhak’s state of health,” said Mohamed Nouri.
The player’s father spoke of a “strange” situation and a number of nuisance calls in Morocco and elsewhere. “To correct the information, the situation is that Abdelhak has been out of a coma for more than 5 years. What changes is that mentally he has improved, hamdoullah,” he explained, adding that Abdelhak Nouri now responds more quickly when called upon.
Mohamed Nouri thus denies the information that his son had just come out of a coma or that he came out of it barely 2 years ago. “One should no longer disturb one’s Muslim brothers with fitna especially during this holy month of Ramadan,” he added.
As a reminder, the promising young player suffered a cardiac arrest in 2017 during a match with his team, Ajax Amsterdam. his story had moved the world and in particular in the Netherlands and since then, several players playing in the European championships have chosen the number 34 of Abdelhak Nouri as a sign of homage.
