Fabrice Muamba watched his Bolton team-mates for the first time yesterday since his collapse.
The courageous Bolton star saw Saturday’s vital victory over Blackburn on a recording of Match of the Day – and will now get a visit from his team-mates before the re-match of the FA Cup clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Boss Owen Coyle is happy for his side to visit their colleague in the London Chest hospital to give them a lift just a week after he was recovering from a cardiac arrest.
Coyle was with Muamba during the vital hours and a few of the Bolton players saw the midfielder during the first days.
However many of the Wanderers stars are happy to see how well Muamba has recovered before they go back to White Hart Lane where the horror incident happened.
Coyle will consult the hospital’s experts to check if Muamba can see as may visitors, but it could be a big boost for him too.
Muamba got to see Bolton’s emotional win over Blackburn Rovers - as medics let him watch the highlights on TV yesterday.
Bolton gave their stricken player a vital triumph over relegation rivals Rovers in a game that was also had a tribute to him before the match.
