After a 12-month battle against Leukaemia in 2018, Carl Ikeme’s 18-year career at Wolves came to an abrupt end
It was an emotional return for former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikeme as he participated in his first training session for Wolves in nearly five years.
Ikeme went on a tour of the beautiful and pristine Compton Park training ground of the team and met old friends and faces in the team.
He was taken round the training ground by Wolves goalkeeper, John Ruddy and met with the coaching staff of the team and other officials of the club.
In the video released on Wolves YouTube page, Ikeme was seen exchanging deep hugs with Wolves captain, Connor Coady. He also met Ivorian defender Willy Bolly before going on to the pitch.
Ikeme showed impressive reflexes in training and looked sharp like he never left as he was put through the paces by the goalkeeping coaches of the team.
The 35-year old goalkeeper who spent all his career as a Wolves player was in goal when the Super Eagles defeated Zambia in Ndola enroute the 2018 World Cup and is seen as the best goalkeeper the Super Eagles has had since Vincent Enyeama.
He had 10 caps with the Super Eagles and made his debut on the 5th of September, 2015 in a goalless draw away to Tanzania.
