The 20-year-old Nouri, collapsed Saturday in the friendly match in Austria in each other by heart rhythm disorders. After a long treatment he was operating a trauma helicopter to the hospital.

“It was much worse. For us it was also equally unclear. We saw that Appie was lying on the ground and that the emergency services were quickly. Then it took quite a long time,” describes Van der Sar the time compared to the NOS.

“At that time, you are going to be something serious to think, also because his legs cannot be moved. There is very adequately acted by the doctor, the physiotherapist and the people of the Red Cross.”

Later Saturday let Ajax know that Nouri a pulse, and that he is on a ventilator. The international Young Orange is in the hospital asleep, so that he is as good as possible can be examined.
