Ex-Birmingham boss Bruce tribute to Bolton's Muamba

Steve Bruce has paid tribute to Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba.

Bruce took Muamba to Birmingham City on loan from Arsenal in 2006 and made the move permanent in a £2million deal a year later.

He said: "Because of his background coming over from the Congo as a political refugee, and what he had been through over there, he was always very humble and respectful.

"And I think the biggest thing that drove him to be a success was that he wanted to be able to look after his family."
