I WILL BE BACK - FABRICE MUAMBA PROMISE TO PLAY FOOTBALL AGAIN, ATTENDS CHARITY MATCH BETWEEN REAL MADRID AND MANCHESTER UNITED LEGEND


Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba has not ruled out the possibility of returning to play professional football as he continues his remarkable recovery from a cardiac arrest.

Muamba collapsed whilst playing in a FA Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur on March 17 and his heart stopped for 78 minutes.

However, the 24-year-old's stunning recovery after regaining consciousness allowed him to be discharged from hospital a month later and he was invited to take part in a short ceremony at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, prior to kick-off in a charity match between Real Madrid and Manchester United legends.

The day after Muamba's collapse, Real Madrid players took to the field for their game against Malaga with messages of support printed on T-shirts and he is especially thankful for the support he received from the football community worldwide.



'When I was in hospital Madrid sent me a shirt signed by all the players and it was a gesture I appreciated a lot,' he said. 'Barcelona also sent me a shirt signed and dedicated by (Lionel) Messi.


'I never thought I would get to step on this pitch. To do so in this manner is an honour.


'It is the first time I have been to the Bernabeu and to do so surrounded by some of the best players ever, I don't have the words to describe it. All the support I have received gives me strength.'
