London: Fabrice Muamba remains critically ill after collapsing during Spurs v Bolton cup tie
Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba today remains in intensive care at the heart attack centre of the London Chest Hospital.
The 23-year-old collapsed in the 41st minute of Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham last night, with the match abandoned after the player received treatment on the pitch from paramedics.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle accompanied Muamba to the hospital before giving an update on the former England Under 21 international’s condition.
Coyle said: “Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial.”
“We’ve obviously been inundated with people wishing him well and we hope that if everybody can pray strongly tonight that Fabrice is able to recover.
