Rabat – Justin Kluivert has not forgotten his friend, Abdelhak Nouri, who is still recovering from a coma.
AS Roma’s new recruit Justin Kluivert made a beautiful gesture for his former Ajax Amsterdam teammate, Moroccan-Dutch footballer Abdelhak Nouri.
During AS Roma’s game against Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday (5-0) in the Champions League, 20-year-old midfielder Kluivert waved Nouri’s number 34 jersey after scoring the fourth goal of the match.
Kluivert has been wearing the number 34 jersey for AS Roma in tribute to the Ajax player who has spent one year in a coma.
Kluivert’s dedication to Nouri was applauded on social media.
Nouri, who is suffering from irremediable brain damage, collapsed on July 8, 2017, during a friendly match between his club Ajax Amsterdam and Werder Bremen in Austria. “Appie,” as he is also called, was suffering from a heart disease.
Since his accident, Nouri has received a lot of support from fans, football stars, teammates, and his club.
The 21-year-old promising talent can now communicate with his family, but his condition remains serious.
