Man Utd star Van de Beek pays tribute to tragic ex-Ajax pal Abdelhak Nouri on 24th birthday after coma hell

DONNY VAN DE BEEK wished old Ajax pal Abdelhak Nouri a happy birthday as the ex-midfielder turned 24 on Friday.

The former Netherlands youth international came through the Amsterdam club with Van de Beek before tragically having to retire early.

Donny van de Beek posted a birthday message to Abdelhak Nouri

During a pre-season friendly in 2017, Nouri suffered a cardiac arrhythmia and collapsed.

An investigation later found the club had ‘inadequate’ provisions in place in the event of an emergency and the player suffered severe and permanent brain damage.

Finally coming out of a coma a year later, he remained bed-bound while being cared for by his family.

As he turned 24, Nouri received several tributes from well-wishers.

Van de Beek wrote ‘Happy Birthday Appie!’ on Instagram along with a photo of the pair lining up for Ajax and a heart emoji.

Chelsea player Hakim Ziyech, another former team-mate, posted his old club’s message to his social media page, with the message: “Stay strong Appie.”

An Ajax post read: “Dear Abdelhak, 24 years… We love you and we think about you. Stay strong, great friend.”

Several friends of Nouri have taken his No34 shirt with them throughout their career, including Van de Beek.

When the United star donned the number at Old Trafford, Abdelhak’s father Mohammed explained their joy at the tribute.

He told NOS last year: “Donny called me. He asked if I was okay with him playing with No34.

“And I said he should. I can only be proud of that, it’s a nice gesture, very special for us.

“Appie’s eyes looked very sharp suddenly. He had tears of joy on his cheeks and was clearly moved when he heard Donny’s voice. Donny is like a son to us.”
