Owen Coyle says Bolton will back Fabrice Muamba in whatever he decides to do next after the Trotters midfielder retired at the age of 24 yesterday.

Muamba stunned the football world on March 17 when he suddenly collapsed and lay face down on the turf during Bolton's FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham. The former England Under-21 midfielder was given 15 electric shocks on the pitch as paramedics tried to revive him and doctors later revealed the 24-year-old's heart had stopped beating for a staggering 78 minutes.

"We have spoken with Fab and he knows we will always support him in whatever he wants to do and that we will always be here for him," Coyle told Bolton's official website.
