The 25-year-old who retired from the game last year after recovering from a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Wanderers’ FA Cup fifth round tie at Tottenham in March 2012 held an Ask Muamba session via his Twitter account.
And when asked who the best player he played alongside was, he had no hesitation in naming the US international who the Whites have been without again this season so far through injury.
Muamba saw first-hand the talent of the 28-year-old Holden, playing their first match together as a midfield pairing at Tottenham in the FA Cup in February 2010.
They went on to start 28 matches together for the Whites the following two years, the most notable a 2-1 home derby victory over Blackburn Rovers in December 2010 when both got on the scoresheet – Holden with an 88th-minute winner. Muamba may not be able to get out on the pitch for Wanderers again but he will hope his former midfield pal can be back from his latest knee injury early next year to help fire the Whites up the table.
According to another answer to his question and answer session on Twitter, Muamba spends most of his days now he is fully recovered, just ‘chilling’.
But he admitted he still misses the dressing room banter at Wanderers and the fervent crowd at the Reebok.
