Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba’s heart condition is “stable” – but he remains critically ill in intensive care.
The midfielder, 23, is at the London Chest Hospital’s heart attack centre after suffering a cardiac arrest during Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Tottenham.
Bolton chairman Phil Gartside and manager Owen Coyle visited the player on Monday morning.
Gartside said: “I ask for everybody to keep Fabrice in their prayers and thoughts.”
In a statement on the club’s website, Gartside added: “The staff at the London Chest Hospital have been nothing short of exceptional and I would like to thank them all at this ongoing critical time.
Muamba’s fiancee Shauna Magunda, the mother of his son Joshua, has thanked well-wishers for their support.
“Where there is life there is hope,” she tweeted on Monday.
Earlier she said: “Please keep praying for Fabrice, it’s really helping I can feel it.”
Speaking outside the hospital on Sunday, Bolton manager Owen Coyle said: “From our end, and on behalf of the family, we certainly want to say thanks to everybody.
“Everybody is praying for Fabrice which is very important and that has been a real source of strength to the family.
“We know it’s such a difficult time for everybody involved, our thoughts are with Fabrice’s family.”
Coyle had earlier stated: “It’s very serious. There’s no getting away from that. God willing, he makes it through.”
The support that we had from Tottenham and our own fans was fantastic – the staff, the fans, the players and the officials at the game – it was unbelievable.”
