EPL: Goalkeeper Carl Ikeme returns five years after cancer battle
Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, has trained with his English Premier League club, Wolverhampton Wanderers nearly five years after he was diagnosed with cancer.
The club made this known via a series of tweets on its Twitter handle on Saturday.
The club posted, “Great to see @Carl_Ikeme back doing what he does best. We invited @Carl_Ikeme back to Compton to train with our first-team. It’s like you’ve never been away.”
In July 2017, Ikeme was diagnosed with the disease after returning for Wolverhampton Wanderers pre-season ahead of their 2017-18 season.
However, after undergoing a rigorous 12-month treatment, he was in complete remission but the disease ended his football career and denied him a place at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Ikeme made his debut for the Super Eagles in 2015 and soon became the first-choice goalkeeper following the retirement of Vincent Enyeama.
But his condition denied a chance of participating at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
