Owen Coyle confident in Fabrice Muamba

Bolton manager Owen Coyle believes Fabrice Muamba will make a success of whatever he turns his attentions toward after the premature end of his career.

Muamba, 24, announced his retirement Wednesday after suffering cardiac arrest during Bolton's FA Cup match at Tottenham in March. He made a remarkable recovery to health after his heart stopped beating for 78 minutes.

Coyle is confident Muamba will succeed as a popular multi-linguist with accountancy qualifications.

"I think Fabrice, with his family, has to absorb everything that's happened," Coyle said. "That'll take a bit of time. And then, having done that, decide what his career path will be.

"Whatever that will be, I've no doubt he'll be very successful because I know how driven he is having come through what he has already to this day. That's going to stand him in good stead."

Should his path include a return to football in some capacity, Coyle insists Bolton will be there to support Muamba.

"He's a very intelligent and clever lad, fluent in three or four different languages," Coyle said. "I've said to him, if he needs any help here at the football club to come in, and if he wants to see about the coaching side of things, we're only too willing and happy to help.

"He knows we'll always be here at Bolton Wanderers to help him in any way we can."
