Fabrice Muamba retires from football

The former Bolton Wanderers midfielder,Fabrice Muamba has announced his retirement from professional football following his on-pitch cardiac arrest arrest during FA Cup match against Tottenham at White Hart Lane in an FA Cup match on March 17 and his heart stopped for 78 minutes.

Muamba had been hopeful of returning to professional football after making encouraging early signs of recovery, but after being advised by doctors to give up the game he has decided to confirm his retirement.

In a statement on the club's official website he said:
Since suffering my heart attack and being discharged from hospital, I have remained utterly positive in the belief I could one day resume my playing career and play for Bolton Wanderers once again. 
As part of my on-going recovery, last week I travelled to Belgium to seek further medical advice from a leading cardiologist. But the news I received was obviously not what I had hoped it would be and it means I am now announcing my retirement from professional football. While the news is devastating, I have much to be thankful for. I thank God that I am alive and I pay tribute once again to the members of the medical team who never gave up on me.
I would also like to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my career and the Bolton fans who have been incredible. I am blessed to have the support of my family and friends at this time." 
I love the game and count myself very lucky to have been able to play at the highest level
Muamba fled war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo when he was 11 and moved to London.

He joined Arsenal's youth academy in 2002 before moving to Birmingham and then Bolton in 2008. 

Wish a very happy healthy peaceful life!
