It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of FTC’s player, Akeem Adams.
Akeem Adams’, player of Ferencvárosi Torna Club and Trinidad and Tobago national side, condition turned into critical three months after his massive heart attack on Saturday when he beside the stably run vascular system also suffered a heavy stroke.
The massive heart attack occurred the 25th September at Adams’ home after the afternoon training. The player was immediately transported to Városmajor Heart Clinic where he underwent three lifesaving operations and received a mechanic instrument supporting his vascular system. At the following times, so as to prevent immediate threat to life another surgery was needed resulting in losing the player’s lower left limb on the grounds of necrosis and contagion. Then, thanks to the heroic fight of the medical staff at the hospital, Akeem’s chances to survive grew continuously; he became able to meet his relatives and friends by his hospital bed. During the intensive treatment, the physicians prepared him for a heart transplant. However, this Saturday complications arose and the player’s body could not cope anymore with pain coming from the mortal cerebral venous thrombosis.
The medical staff of Városmajor Heart Clinic and Ferencvárosi Torna Club share the pain of the loss of Akeem Adams!
“As the trees of Kosztolányi, so belonged I to Üllői Street. My foes might have said: Albert loiters on the FTC pitch like the trees from Üllői Street with a slight difference; they don’t have their arms on their hips. Well, I was indeed loitering; what’s more, sometimes with my arms on my hip, but between two loitering, I performed some tricks, scored some goals and pleased a few hundred thousand football friends. For me, the FTC stadium meant everything: I, the lad from the countryside, could have become and became somebody there. MY FORTUNE LEAD ME THERE SINCE SOMEWHERE UP IN THE SKY IT HAD BEEN DETERMINED THAT MY LIFE WOULD BE FERENCVÁROS.” - Flórián Albert
