Akeem Adams, a Trinidad and Tobago defender who played for Hungary's Ferencvaros until suffering a heart attack in September, has died. He was 22 years old.

Ferencvaros said Adams died Monday after suffering a brain haemorrhage on Saturday. He had been hospitalized since the heart attack and his left leg had been amputated to alleviate circulatory problems.

Adams, who joined Ferencvaros in August, played just a handful of games for Hungary's most popular team. His last game was Sept. 22, a 3-1 victory over Ujpest, Ferencvaros' traditional rivals.

Adams also played nine times on Trinidad's national team and started three matches for the Caribbean country at the Under-20 World Cup played in Egypt in 2009.
