Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba faces a 'please explain' from manager Owen Coyle.

The Mirror says Muamba, who knew he was out of the side on Friday, sent an odd message to his followers that 'playing favourites is one of the most damaging problems in any group of people.'

Coyle picked Darren Pratley, a player he signed, instead and he scored the first goal. Muamba came on for the last minute.
