The current Arsenal regime continue to bring back former players to work with the club, and this week Fabrice Muamba was the latest to visit.
Jeorge Bird reports that former Arsenal academy midfielder Fabrice Muamba was at Hale End working with the Arsenal u16 squad on Tuesday.
Muamba came through the Arsenal youth system in the early 2000s, and he went on to make his first-team debut in a couple of League Cup matches in 2005.
After a successful loan to Birmingham City, he ended up making that move permanent. The midfielder subsequently played regular Premier League football with Bolton Wanderers before his shock early retirement from playing after a mid-game cardiac arrest.
The good news is that he recovered and has gone on to study sports journalism and start his coaching badges.
It’s obviously great to see Muamba back at Arsenal, as one of many former players to spend time at the club lately.
Obviously the club have Mikel Arteta in the manager role, Edu working as a technical director, and Per Mertesacker in charge of the academy. Then Jack Wilshere, David Seaman, and now Muamba are among others to return to the training ground at their old club recently.
It’s not just former players receiving invites to return, with Mikel Arteta and Edu making public their desire for former manager Arsene Wenger to make an Arsenal comeback in some capacity.
