Dutch footballer Abdelhak Nouri open his eyes after 33 months in coma

Dutch footballer Abdelhak Nouri opened his eyes for the first time about 33 months later. He was in a coma for so long and has lost almost three years of his life.

Former Ajax midfielder is now being treated at home after spending nearly three years in a coma, according to his family.

Nouri was with the main club of the Ajax when he was about 20. Considering him, the Nederlands club was planning their 2017-18 season and he was also participating in pre-season preparatory matches. 

Nouri suffered a cardiac arrhythmia attack on the pitch during July 2017 friendly, sustaining severe and permanent brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen supply. The 22-year-old woke up a year later but was left unable to move or communicate for himself.

However, his health continued to improve over time even though he was in a coma month after month. As a result, Nouri got back his consciousness after being in a coma for about 33 months. 

Nouri's brother Abdur Rahim said, “We talk to him like he’s not sick. We take him into our conversations and we watch football with him in the living room, for example.

“Then he watches. You notice that he likes that very much. He often shows emotions. Sometimes he is emotional but often there is also a smile. 

However, his father, Mohammed, is still worried about his boy and wants to take more care of him.

Nouri has played 9 matches from 2015 to 2017. He has also played in all age groups in the Netherlands. If everything went well, he would have made his national team debut.
