After accepting responsibility for Abdelhak Nouri’s severe and lifelong brain damage, Ajax reached a £6.4 million financial settlement with his family.

The family of brilliant midfielder Abdelhak Nouri, who suffered serious and lasting brain damage after collapsing during a pre-season friendly in 2017, has negotiated a financial settlement with Ajax.

Remember that the club earlier admitted that Nouri did not receive sufficient medical care after collapsing and took responsibility for it.

The club stated on Monday, February 21 that Nouri’s family will receive £6.54 million in damages and lost future revenue.

The agreement put an end to a complaint brought by Nouri’s family to the Dutch Football Association’s arbitration committee. Since 2017, Ajax has covered Nouri’s medical and other care needs.

When Nouri collapsed against Werder Bremen in Austria, he was only 20 years old. In September 2016, he made his Ajax debut, appearing in 15 games for the main team.

The club named a trophy after him, which is given to the most gifted youngster in the Ajax academy each year, and the first team retired Nouri’s No. 34 shirt.

‘It’s fantastic that we’ve achieved an agreement so we can finish this,’ Ajax director Edwin van der Sar remarked.

‘We are all aware that it does not put an end to Abdelhak’s and his family’s misery. It’s still a very terrible scenario, and we feel the same way at Ajax.’ He added
