BREAKING: Carl Ikeme Retires From Football

Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has announced his retirement from football.

Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in July 2017. Last month, the Nigerian shot-stopper announced that he was in remission.

The 32-year-old has been with Wolves throughout his career, making more than 200 appearances for the club.

Jeff Shi, Wolves executive chairman, said: “Having been at the club since the age of 14, Carl is far more than just a player in our eyes – he is our brother and an important part of our family.

“When Carl came to tell us his news, yes there was sadness, but also great happiness to see him so healthy and hungry for the opportunities that lay ahead of him.

“Carl is strong, a fighter, something he has proven in his playing career and also during what has been a very challenging time for him, so I have no doubt he will be a success in whatever he does next.

“We wish Carl all the very best for the future, but remind him he will always remain a part of the Wolves family.”
