T&T footballer fighting for his life in Hungary
Budapest: Trinidad and Tobago defender Akeem Adams is fighting for his life in Hungary where he plays for champions Ferencvarosi TC, the club website has reported.
Adams suffered a heart attack Wednesday night at his home and was rushed to a heart clinic where he is receiving professional care, the website stated Friday.
“Doctors are still struggling to stabilise his condition,” Ferencvarosi TC said.
“Akeem Adams is fighting for his life.”
The club website also reported that an operation was done to remove a blood clot from Adam’s heart.
“The additional risk of myocardial infarction was resolved, but the player’s condition remains serious,” said Psalm Meek, a senior cardiologist at the National Sports Centre in Hungary and a member of Ferencvarosi TC’s medical staff.
“The next few days will be crucial in the circulatory system of the player (who will be) constantly tested and kept in intensive care units throughout the medical control. Believe and trust for Akeem Adams to recover as soon as possible.”
Adams, 22, has played nine times for the T&T senior team, debuting as a 16-year-old and was also a member of the country’s FIFA Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup teams.
He joined Ferencvarosi TC as a summer signing on a one-year contract after a one-week trial.
