Our interviewee this time is Fabrice Muamba - who came up through the Arsenal youth system before making his first-team debut as a teenager shortly after the Invincible season. But his career was drastically cut short aged just 23 after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, while playing for Bolton in 2011. In this episode Fabrice candidly recounts that incident, and the aftermath, revealing how Thierry Henry, among others in the Arsenal family, gave him valuable support and advice at the time.This episode is in partnership with Camden Town BrewerySee acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
With over 160 Premier League appearances to his name by the age of twenty three, Fabrice Muamba's career was destined for greatness. Learning his trade alongside Wenger's legendary invincible side of the early noughties, the robust midfielder was quickly becoming one of English footballs next great midfield hopes, proven by his astounding thirty three u21 caps. In March 2012 however, it all ended. Muamba suffered cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane and with his heart stopping for 78 minutes, was considered by the masses to be as good as gone. Miraculously, Muamba made a full recovery, but he would never step foot on the pitch again. In Episode 41 of The Michael Anthony Show, the former Bolton man opens up about his rise to the top and his struggles with his helpless fall to premature retirement. Muamba's life proves just as fascinating outside of the game. Arriving in London in 1999 without a word of English, the Zaire born eleven year old dreamed of nothing but survival having escaped the atrocities of a war torn Congo. Now aged 31, the father, coach and University has achieved that and more. Racism in football is also discussed.Follow and Listen to episode 41 of @themichaelanthonyshow on iTunes, Spotify and Soundcloud.
