24 Years Old Fabrice Muamba Retires from Professional Football

Fabrice Muamba, the Bolton Wanderers midfielder who collapsed and suffered a cardiac arrest on march 17 during Bolton’s FA Cup quarter-final tie with Tottenham Hotspur has announced he is retiring from professional football. During the match, 24 years old Fabrice suffered a 78 minutes cardiac arrest in which doctors thought that he was already dead.

As a result, Fabrice about four weeks in the hospital going through intensive care before he was finally released on April 16.

Five months after the incident, Fabrice has decided to quit professional football as a result of the advice he has been given by his doctor.

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, said Muamba in a press statement.

As part of my ongoing 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.

Fabrice Muamba’s professional football career started  when he joined Arsenal and then move on to join Birmingham City before finally moving to Bolton where he spent his last four years as a footballer.
