The 32-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper made 274 domestic career appearances in all competitions, with over 200 of them coming for Wolves, the club he joined in 2000 as a 14-year-old.

Ikeme, who is now in remission, said his wife, Saba, was nine months pregnant at the time he was diagnosed with blood cancer and he had to inform her of the sad news even in her fragile state. Ikeme said;

“She was the first person I told. I was obviously upset, as you would be after that sort of news.”

“I was in shock. I got back home and thought: ‘I need to tell Saba.’ I called her and I couldn’t get it out on the phone, but she knew something was up. I got back and Saba came in and I told her the news. She was nine months pregnant at the time, due next week. I’ve never seen her cry the way she cried. It was tough.”

Carl, who had to miss the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia as a result of the cancer recently retired from football.
