NEWSFLASH: Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba retires from football due to health concerns. We wish Fabrice Muamba the very best in life and his future endeavors. You will recall Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest during a quarter-final soccer match against Tottenham Hotspur March 17. He is retiring from all professional sports.
Muamba had travelled to Belgium earlier in the week to have minor heart surgery, which was said to have been routine and had no bearing on whether the player would return to action. But Muamba says he received advice during his time there, prompting his retirement.
“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 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.” Source
