A lot of Dutch (often ex-Ajax, not always) players doing this in recent years


Roller95

Mostly his (youth) teammates and friends


Uruguayan_Tarantino

Is (still) very wholesome


Roller95

ole259

Pilgore1

VDB done the same at United I think.


PantomimeEagle

Veltman at Brighton, Kluivert did so at Roma


GuitaristHeimerz

I feel like an idiot not seeing the pattern, I’ve seen these players’ numbers a lot the last years…


ChinookNL

Kluivert only did for one season for som reason


MrCrashdummy

Quite a few players have done it


DarkPasta

Veltman at Brighton

SO MUCH FUN


tiorzol

... Not that fun


teymon

Didn't boateng do it too?


MrCrashdummy

He dedicated his goal to Nouri with a special shirt under his kit, don’t think he ever wore #34


teymon

He wore a nouri shirt under his shirt, just looked it up https://www.ad.nl/nederlands-voetbal/kevin-prince-boateng-speelt-hele-seizoen-met-nouri-op-zijn-shirt~a8fa6f75/


PsSalin

Mokthar at Columbus Crew


_notyourmother_

Seems a good bloke from his interview.


GoatButton

Also very handsome


carpe228

Cristiano Ronaldo lite


Fati25

He's not handsome


GoatButton

Agree to disagree


HungryVegetation

He is, we have nothing but love for him at Villa.


ZachMich

I think this is his first transfer since all that happened, so his first opportunity to change numbers


Roller95

You’re correct. I was mistaken


UtmostRegret

Got so much time for El Ghazi.


SmellsLikeBigCheese

Ain't nobody...

Gwanyc

That’s wholesome 💗


TJsmiles

What does this mean? Would appreciate an explanation, thanks.


EasyModeActivist

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.


Devlin90

Nouri collapsed at 20 and suffered brain damage and is now unable to play. He was number 34 at ajax.


death2theleadr

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.


jdbolick

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.


kwatto

i never really thought about the failure of your medical team in that situation. were there any repercussions for them?


jdbolick

Yes, but the club can never make up for what was lost.


kwatto

yes of course not


gipsydanger1701

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!


efcdoyley

He’s also got 34 because I doubt we would’ve won a trophy by 2029


31_whgr

he’s a huge Granit Xhaka fan as well I’ve heard


yyzable

Who isn't


GhandiHadAGrapeHead

Arsenal's back 5


NoMotor9290

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.


abottomful

The refs


MSUxSpartan

Arsenal fans at the moment


xosellc

this is going over my head

Awh I love this 😭. Always stay strong, Appie.


Molesandmangoes

How’s Nouri doing these days? Is there any news or have they chosen to stay out of the media about it?


petnarwhal

He’s awake and seems to react to his surroundings, but he cant speak or eat. Not much more is known realy


ilife360

I do hope he does well. not many Dutch player have any luck in Everton


xBram

John Heitinga did well I think, can’t think of more successful players?


ilife360

I think he did ok but not outstanding.


borgerishikrimpatul

Pure class. You love to see it.
