Muamba contemplates career in football politics
'Born again' Muamba eyeing career in football politics
Fabrice Muamba, who miraculously recovered from an on-field cardiac arrest, is contemplating a career in football politics now, and is set to meet FIFA chief Sepp Blatter to hold talks over his future.
The midfielder was forced to retire from soccer in August, four months after collapsing at Tottenham Hotspurs while playing for Bolton Wanderers in front of a global television audience.
Muamba finds going to soccer matches tough emotionally, but admits he's now attracted to sports politics.
"I like this kind of side of it, making decisions... I have a meeting with Sepp Blatter," Sports24 quoted Muamba, as saying.
The former England under-21 international added, "hopefully he can get a job for me."
The meeting is due to take place in Zurich on October 30. (ANI)
