Podcast: Fabrice Muamba still in critical condition

Fabrice Muamba remains in a dangerous condition in intensive care though his heart has “stabilized”.

Manager Owen Coyle and chairman Phil Gartside again visited the midfielder, who has not regained consciousness since suffering a cardiac arrest in Bolton’s FA Cup tie against Tottenham.

Rumours have begun to circulate that the Lancashire club may pull out of the competition following Saturday’s emotional events.

Club captain Kevin Davies earlier told BBC Radio Manchester that, “Until we get more information about Fabrice’s condition, I don’t think anything really matters.

“I know they were keen to get the game off tomorrow night [against Aston Villa], which is a no-brainer. From then on, we don’t really know as players. It’s all about Fabrice and his family really. The football side just doesn’t come into our thoughts.”

Tributes have continued to pour in for Muamba, with Gartside echoing the player’s fiancé’s call to keep the player in people’s prayers.

Fellow professionals have also been quick to send their best wishes with team-mate Stuart Holden tweeting, “”Praying for you Fab. Hope he’s OK. Thoughts with him and his family. For all those asking, I know as much as you do. Waiting anxiously for updates from teammates. Fab is a fighter!”

Arsenal captain also tweeted “I’m so sad about what happened to Fabrice Muamba today. Played with him for a couple of years. What a great guy. Always a smile on his face. Please Fabrice bring that smile back. My thoughts are with you and your lovely family!”

Following the emotional events at White Hart lane this weekend, Mark McKinlay brings us up to date with the latest news.
