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 in an FA Cup tie against Tottenham on March 17 and his heart stopped for 78 minutes. However, the 24-year-old's stunning recovery saw him discharged from hospital a month later and he took part in a short ceremony at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, prior to a charity match between Real Madrid and Manchester United legends.

"I am happy to be here and the fact is I continue to feel fine. I am improving slowly but surely," Muamba told AS.
