Football family unite behind Muamba

Published Add your comment

The football world remains united in hope for stricken Bolton player Fabrice Muamba.

As it was revealed Muamba will spend at least another 24 hours in intensive care after medical staff took two hours to get the 23-year-old's heart breathing on its own following his collapse during an FA Cup quarter-final with Tottenham on Saturday, former team-mate Gary Cahill led the tributes.

Cahill was a team-mate of Muamba's for two-and-a-half years before leaving Bolton for Chelsea in January. The bond between the pair remains strong and after scoring in Chelsea's FA Cup win over Leicester at Stamford Bridge, Cahill revealed a T-shirt with the message 'Pray 4 Muamba' printed on it.
