Bolton boss Coyle grateful to Spurs rival Redknapp for Muamba support

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is grateful to Tottenham counterpart Harry Redknapp for his support over Fabrice Muamba's collapse.

Coyle plans to repay him by ending Tottenham's Wembley dream at White Hart Lane tonight.

Coyle said: "It doesn't surprise me because I know the man he is anyway, but I've spoken to Harry two or three times a day since last week.

"That was while I was down there. But even when I came back and we both had games to prepare for, I spoke to him each day. That just sums up the man he is.

"He didn't have to be phoning two or three times a day for an update, but he had genuine concern and goodwill.

"From Daniel Levy as chairman all the way through the club, Tottenham Hotspur have been truly outstanding."
