Fabrice Muamba - Club statement

Club Chairman, Daniel Levy, said: "Our thoughts are with Fabrice's family and Bolton Wanderers and we are all willing him to pull through. Events such as this put everything into perspective.

"We are immensely proud and grateful to the medical teams at both clubs, their response was immediate and professional. Our thanks also to both sets of fans for their support and behaviour. Too often we read the negatives about football and yet last night, at a time of intense emergency and uncertainty, we saw the true humanity and empathy of the footballing family."

Manager Harry Redknapp said: "All our thoughts are with Fabrice, his family, Owen Coyle and the Club. It was the right decision to abandon the game, everybody was in a state of shock and it wouldn't have been right to carry on. Football is the last thing on anyone's mind when an awful situation such as this happens. All we are thinking about now is Fabrice and his family."
