Nouri was taken to hospital and put in an induced coma as doctors rushed to save him.

But after waking up, the youngster sadly suffered brain damage due to a shortage of oxygen.

Nouri’s brother later revealed that the midfielder can’t walk, talk or even recognise his family any more.

The chance of Nouri recovering are virtually nil, but he remains at the forefront of everyone’s minds after crowds gathered in support outside his house on Saturday.

The city of Amsterdam has been left in shock after the horrendous news.

And Ajax fans packed out the road outside Nouri’s apartment, with his brother pictured at the window in tears while thanking those present for their prayers.
