'Born again' Muamba turns down offer to appear in 'I'm a Celebrity' reality show

London, Nov. 9 (ANI): Former Bolton Wanderers star Fabrice Muamba has reportedly turned an offer to appear in the reality TV show, 'I'm a Celebrity'.

Muamba, 24, who managed to survive after suffering a cardiac arrest on the White Hart Lane pitch last season during a match against Tottenham, said he wasn't interested in the show, as he didn't consider himself to be a 'celebrity'.

"I was asked to go to the [I'm a Celebrity] jungle but I thought this is not for me. I'm not a celebrity. I'm not interested in that," the Daily Express quoted Muamba, as saying.

Muamba, who released his autobiography 'I'm Still Standing' recently, said there are plenty of other things he'd like to do now and explore.

"One thing? Put my boots on and go out training. If I knew that the doctors gave me the all-clear to go out training tomorrow, that would be great. But I can't," he said.

"I really adjusted my life so I don't worry about that. I am just happy to be able to do things. I want to learn how to swim. I want to enjoy life, do different things, explore different things that I would not have been able to do as a footballer," he added. (ANI)
