Redknapp feared the worst after Bolton's Muamba collapsed

   Mar 20, 12:13 pm

London, Mar.20 (ANI): Tottenham Hotspur coach Harry Redknapp feared a repeat of Marc-Vivien Foe's death on the pitch when Bolton's Fabrice Muamba collapsed last Saturday.

Now,according to The Sun, every Spurs star has asked for cardiac screening, and Redknapp backs them

The Tottenham manager was just several feet away from the emergency crews that battled to save Muamba.

He said: "When they were pumping his heart, we realized just how desperate it was. I feared the worst. None of us could believe what had happened. Everyone was shocked."

Redknapp says the distressing scenes of the abandoned FA Cup quarter-final gave him flashbacks to Foe's death while playing for Cameroon in 2003.

Former West Ham and Manchester City star Foe collapsed on the field during his nation's Confederations Cup match against Colombia, played in Lyon, France.

Redknapp believes Muamba, 23, would not have survived had the tie not been at a league ground, where specialist resuscitation equipment was available to medics.

Redknapp admits the trauma has had a huge effect on the Tottenham players as they prepare for tomorrow's crucial game with Stoke. (ANI)
