Super Eagles and Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, has announced that he has finally won the fight against Leukaemia, as it is now in “complete remission,” one year after intense chemotherapy.

The excited goalee took to his InstaGram page and Twitter handle, to share the good news.

He said, “After a tough year and intense chemotherapy throughout I would like to let everyone know I am in complete REMISSION . I still have hurdles to get over to be cured but I can hopefully now move forward with some normality. I would like to thank my family/friends to start with who have gone above and beyond for me ?? The support I have received from Wolves/Nigeria, the football world and from people from all over the world has been hard to put into words. I can’t thank everyone at the Christie and heartlands hospital enough for there care!!!What next who knows… I’m just taking it a day at a time #Grateful ?? #Remission”

It will be recalled that 32-year old Carl Ikeme, who was diagnosed with acute Leukaemia in June 2017, was the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Wolverhampton Wanderers first choice goal keeper before his illness.

More so, football lovers and players alike, have continued to show support and encouragement to the player, wishing him quick recovery.
