Tottenham boss Redknapp: Abandoning Cup tie right decision

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says it was the right decision to call off their FA Cup tie with Bolton Wanderers after the collapse of Fabrice Muamba.

There's now doubts Bolton will fulfill the game with their players still upset over their teammate.

The news has rocked the football world with Redknapp, who was standing on the touchline when Muamba collapsed, saying: "All our thoughts are with Fabrice, his family, (Bolton boss) Owen Coyle and the club.

"It was the right decision to abandon the game, everybody was in a state of shock and it wouldn't have been right to carry on.

"Football is the last thing on anyone's mind when an awful situation such as this happens. All we are thinking about now is Fabrice and his family."
