Fabrice Ndala Muamba is a former Bolton central mid-fielder who played professional football from 2005 to 2012. He began his career with Arsenal and gained recognition when playing for Birmingham City. After completing the tenure of his contract and making 70 appearances for Birmingham City, he finally moved to Bolton Wanderers. His style of play was often compared with the legendary French footballer Patrick Vieira, thus proving his competence at the mid-field. His brilliance surpassed the football field as he excelled in academics, irrespective of his inability to speak English. At the age of 11, he took refuge in England, escaping the violence in his birth city of Kinshasa; now situated in DR Congo. As a British Citizen on the basis of naturalization, he represented England at U-19 and U-21 level. His promising career was tragically cut short after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the field when playing against Tottenham Hotspur. After his premature retirement, he spent some time doing charities and aiding the cause of heart health. Later, he was drawn back into football and sought a career as a coach.
