Another guest on the special program about Nouri was the FC midfielder. Barcelona Frenkie de Jong, who explained that before leaving for the Catalan club, he went to visit his friend at the hospital. “” When I went to see him, he still wasn’t home. When I sat down with him, his mother came and said, “Appie, where should Frenkie go? To Barcelona?” Then ‘Appie’ waved his eyebrows to agree. It was a very special moment for me and the family, “he said.
