Football: Trinidad international Akeem Adams in 'critical' condition after heart attack

BUDAPEST (AFP) - Trinidad and Tobago international Akeem Adams has suffered a heart attack in Budapest where he plays for Hungarian top-flight side Ferencvaros, his club said Friday.

"Akeem's condition remains very critical," the club's managing director Pal Orosz told Hungarian television Digi Sport, while a statement on the club's website said the player's state was "still critical, life threatening".

Adams, 22, suffered the heart attack at his Budapest home late Wednesday after a training session and a team meal, various media reports said.

The player managed however to alert his team-mates, who called an ambulance.

Since then, he had undergone three emergency operations at a Budapest hospital, Orosz said.

The club's bitter rivals Ujpest have come forward to wish Adams a speedy recovery via Twitter.

Adams has eight international caps and represented Trinidad and Tobago at the 2007 Under-17 and 2009 Under-20 World Cups.

He has played six matches for Ferencvaros since joining the team in July.
