Adams critical after suffering heart attack
The T&T Football Association and all National players and coaches currently have defender Akeem Adams in their prayers and thoughts after the player suffered a massive heart attack in Hungary yesterday. The 22-year-old former Under 17 and Under 20 defender is currently under contract with Ferencvárosi TC.
Adams, who has also played for the national senior team, is currently in ICU and is said to be in critical condition. He has played 539 minutes for his new club so far this season.
His teammate Tomi Csilus is in contact with the TTFA and says there has been an overwhelming outpouring of support for the player from his teammates, friends and fans at the club.
“After training we were talking a lot and smiling and even dancing a bit. Then about three hours after, Akeem called the woman at the club and said he wasn’t feeling good. Then ten minutes later we found him out at his home and he was rushed to the hospital,” Csilus said. “We are all praying for him He has been a good friend since he arrived here to join us.
Minister of Sport Anil Roberts has sent his wishes for a speedy recovery to Adams.
Roberts said: “It is often hard to comprehend why a young man in his prime would suffer such a major heart attack but I urge his family and friends to keep the faith that he will pull through without too much long-term damage to his body, and that he will recover enough to return to what looked like a very promising career as a footballer. I know the young man will be in the thoughts and prayers of all of Trinidad and Tobago over the next two to three days as we await word of his progress and prognosis.”
