Super Eagles and Wolves Goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has made the decision to retire from football after winning a battle against Cancer on medical advice.
Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia a year ago. After a prolonged treatment, he recently revealed he was in remission.
Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi 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.”
