British media reports said that Ajax Amsterdam had taken a shocking decision against a number of its players, including Moroccan midfielder Abdel Haq Nuri, after a few days of waking up after a three-year coma.
Abdel-Haq Nuri (22 years old) had a heart attack during a friendly match with his team Ajax against Werder Bremen of Germany in July 2017, and the injury directly affected his head, causing an imbalance in brain functions, which put him in a long coma, which he woke up last weekend.
According to the British newspaper “Telegraph”, the club decided to lay off its Moroccan midfielder Abdelhak Nuri, a few days after the player woke up from a coma that lasted two years and nine months, and the club made this decision as part of its policy to reduce financial losses amid the Corona virus pandemic. The newspaper pointed out that this policy will include other players whose contracts expire next summer.
But the club administration, according to the newspaper, has pledged to provide acceptable financial compensation to the Nuri family by next June, and the club is also trying to reach an agreement to allocate a future sum to be paid monthly to Nuri.
