Muamba accepts end of career

Published 1 Comments

Fabrice Muamba says he has come to terms with the fact that he will never play professional football again.

Muamba earned plaudits from leading figures within the game for his determination to return to action following an on-pitch cardiac arrest in Bolton's FA Cup tie at Tottenham in March. The 24-year-old had a pacemaker fitted to help ease the pressure on his heart, but he retired in August upon doctors' advice.

Muamba admits quitting the game was hard, but the former Bolton man has accepted the fact that he will never kick a ball in anger again. "I've already adjusted myself to the idea that I'm never going to be able to kick a ball again but life brings different challenges," Muamba told Football Focus.
