Bolton boss Owen Coyle admits Fabrice Muamba is continuing to shows signs of improvement in his recovery from a cardiac arrest.

Muamba has been in the intensive care unit at the London Chest Hospital after collapsing during an FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur on March 17th and Coyle admits the club are in daily contact with hospital officials regarding the 23-year-old's condition.

"He continues to get better, but remaining in intensive care," Coyle told Sky Sports.

"When we went the other day and managed to see him, we could see the continued improvement and that all bodes well.

"I also have to say thank you to the press, the media, for how they have conducted themselves and the way they have given Fabrice and his family that privacy that's been required.

"Again, now is the time when they need a little bit more time and space for Fabrice's continued recovery, for him and the family.

"The well wishes have been really supportive and helped him no end and I think he has taken great strength from that. That will help in his continued fight to recover.

"We have always had representation at the hospital and that will continue because it's important that we know he is getting better, which he is," he added.

"The doctor gets the daily updates in the morning. He's going in the right direction and, with everybody's thoughts and prayers, long may that continue."
