Bolton manager: Muamba is 'massively disappointed'

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.

He is obviously massively disappointed that he won’t be able to carry on his career, but everyone has seen what a fighter and strong person he is in mind and body.

We know that he will go on to achieve great things and within all this disappointment, the most important thing is that he is here, alive, today.
