Snapshot: Fabrice Muamba Makes Tearjerking Reebok Return

By Chris Wright

Six weeks after collapsing and actually dying for 78 minutes, Fab Muamba was back on the pitch at the Reebok Stadium last night, entering to a standing ovation and thanking the fans for their support during his convalescence from a cardiac arrest.

What a chief…

Bolton went on to get pretty much trounced by Tottenham, who finished the evening back in the top four on goal difference thanks to a 4-1 win at the Reebok, with goals from Luka Modric, Rafael van der Vaart and a couple for Emmanuel Adebayor; Nigel Reo-Coker snaffling Bolton’s consolation.
