Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle spoke again yesterday of Fabrice Muamba's condition.

The midfielder remains in a critical condition after collapsing during their FA Cup tie with Tottenham.

Coyle said on Sunday afternoon: "From our end, and on behalf of the family, we want to say a big thanks to everyone.

"We have been inundated by good messages, everyone praying for Fabrice which is very important.

"It has been a real source of strength for the family. We know how difficult a time it is for everyone.

"I can't really quantify it (the support). It has been incredible, not just from the football world, from everyone.

"It is great to be talented at football but it's more important to be a genuinely nice man and everyone recognises Fabrice is that.

"That has pulled everyone together.

"We certainly hope he comes through this. If he pulls through it would be marvellous, it really would."
