Justin Kluivert to adopt Abdelhak Nouri shirt number at Roma

Justin Kluivert will wear the No. 34 shirt at Roma in tribute to his friend Abdelhak Nouri, who suffered brain damage after having a cardiac arrest while playing for Ajax last year.

Kluivert, who joined Roma from Ajax in a £17.25 million move, posted a video on Instagram in which he said he was adopting the number in honour of his "friend-brother."

Nouri, 21, was airlifted to a hospital after suffering the cardiac arrest during a friendly against Bundesliga side Werder Bremen last July but suffered "serious and permanent" brain damage.

"Why 34? Appie's number. My prayers and shirt number for you, my friend-brother who taught me so much," Kluivert said.

Last month, Ajax general manager Edwin Van der Sar said the club had not provided adequate on-pitch treatment following the incident.

"We recognise our responsibility and liability for the consequences of this," he said. "For a long time we were convinced that Abdelhak had received the best possible care on the field."

Investigations showed that a defibrillator should have been used sooner in the treatment, and Van der Sar added: "Had this happened, it's possible that Abdelhak would have come out in a better condition."
