Bolton boss Coyle penned thank-you to all at Tottenham

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has written an open letter to everyone at Tottenham thanking them for their support following Fabrice Muamba's collapse last week.

Spurs won the replayed FA Cup tie 3-1 last night.

Coyle wrote in the programme for tonight's rescheduled tie: "On behalf of everyone at Bolton Wanderers and our supporters, I would like to offer our sincere thanks to Tottenham Hotspur - the staff, players, management and fans - for their support for Fabrice and his family at this difficult time.

"We have been truly humbled by the care and concern shown by you all for Fabrice.

"Harry (Redknapp, the Tottenham manager) has been in touch regularly to check on Fabrice's progress and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been in regular contact with our chairman Phil Gartside.

"The family have appreciated the many messages of support from Spurs fans.

"Tottenham's club doctor Shabaaz Mughal, the medical team and paramedics in attendance at White Hart Lane last Saturday played a vital part in giving Fabrice the best possible chance after his cardiac arrest and I would like to thank them all.

"I would like to ask you to keep Fabrice and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he continues his recovery.

"He has a long road ahead of him and the messages of support have been a great source of strength and energy for everybody. Thank you all."
