Nouri sustained severe and permanent brain damage after suffering a cardiac arrhythmia attack in a pre-season friendly with German outfit Werder Bremen in July 2017.

“He sleeps, eats, sneezes and burps but is very dependent,” his brother Abderrahim was quoted saying by De Wereld Draait Door.

“Some communication is possible, for example raising eyebrows.”

Many of Europe’s top players paid a series of tributes to the youngster after his collapse.

 Hundreds of fans also showed their appreciation by gathering outside his home in Amsterdam shortly after the incident, which was met with emotional thanks by the player’s relatives.

Nouri burst onto the scene as a teenager in 2016 and was considered one of Ajax’s most talented prospects.
