A lot of Dutch (often ex-Ajax, not always) players doing this in recent years
Mostly his (youth) teammates and friends
Is (still) very wholesome
I… Wasn’t trying to say that it wasn’t
No one is saying you weren’t trying to say that Roller!!!
the (still) implies it a bit.
I've just (shit) myself
Can you all (stop) please
VDB done the same at United I think.
Veltman at Brighton, Kluivert did so at Roma
I feel like an idiot not seeing the pattern, I’ve seen these players’ numbers a lot the last years…
Kluivert only did for one season for som reason
Quite a few players have done it
Veltman at Brighton
Players who play(ed) with 34 in honour of Appie: El Ghazi, Van de Beek, Veltman, Kluivert, Younes, Sanniez, Sandler, Diks, Boultam, Savastano, Dankerlui, van Rhijn, Amrabat, Obowobale
Ousmane Dembele also played with Nouri’s name on his shoes for a year
SO MUCH FUN
... Not that fun
Didn't boateng do it too?
He dedicated his goal to Nouri with a special shirt under his kit, don’t think he ever wore #34
He wore a nouri shirt under his shirt, just looked it up
Mokthar at Columbus Crew
De Wit plays with 34 for us too
Love to see it. Stay strong, Appie ❤️
Seems a good bloke from his interview.
Also very handsome
Cristiano Ronaldo lite
He's not handsome
Agree to disagree
He is, we have nothing but love for him at Villa.
I think this is his first transfer since all that happened, so his first opportunity to change numbers
You’re correct. I was mistaken
Got so much time for El Ghazi.
That’s wholesome 💗
What does this mean? Would appreciate an explanation, thanks.
Nouri was an Ajax player who collapsed because of cardiac arrhythmia during a training camp in preseason in 2017. Ajax doctors didn't respond properly and he got permanent brain damage. He was in a coma for a year and even after waking up he could basically only wink. He's still alive but it's not looking like his situation will improve again. Lots of former teammates have taken his shirt number at their next clubs in tribute to him.
Nouri collapsed at 20 and suffered brain damage and is now unable to play. He was number 34 at ajax.
Abdelhak Nouri collapsed during a friendly match between Ajax and Werder Bremen on July 8, 2017 in Austria due to a cardiac arrest, which caused serious brain damage.
You know the Ajax squad that reached the Champions League semifinal in 2018-2019? Appie Nouri came up with that group through the youth ranks and was considered by many to be the best of them. Unfortunately in 2017 during a preseason friendly he had cardiac arrest and Ajax hadn't prepared medical resources adequately so he suffered permanent brain damage. He was robbed not only of a chance at a great career but also a normal life, so those who played with him pay tribute to him.
i never really thought about the failure of your medical team in that situation. were there any repercussions for them?
Yes, but the club can never make up for what was lost.
yes of course not
Man, I’m a 37 year old man from Ireland living in Canada, supported villa since I was younger than I can remember. I’ve seen great players come and go but I don’t understand why this one stings. I really loved watching this fella. He was a player that at his best inspired and made a difference, at his worse was positive and reliable. Hope he reaches new heights! Thanks for the years Ben gazi!
He’s also got 34 because I doubt we would’ve won a trophy by 2029
he’s a huge Granit Xhaka fan as well I’ve heard
Arsenal's back 5
Actually I’m sure Rob Holding loves the chance to showcase when Xhaka gets sent off, Nketiah on the other hand did not seem happy.
Arsenal fans at the moment
this is going over my head
Awh I love this 😭. Always stay strong, Appie.
How’s Nouri doing these days? Is there any news or have they chosen to stay out of the media about it?
He’s awake and seems to react to his surroundings, but he cant speak or eat. Not much more is known realy
I do hope he does well. not many Dutch player have any luck in Everton
John Heitinga did well I think, can’t think of more successful players?
I think he did ok but not outstanding.
Pure class. You love to see it.
