Carl Ikeme Statement

9th July 2017


In light of the recent news that Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia, everyone at Cure Leukaemia would like to send our best wishes to Carl and the Wolves family.

The 31-year-old Nigerian international goalkeeper returned some abnormal blood tests during his pre-season testing, and further medical investigation has revealed he is suffering from leukaemia.

Carl will now start an immediate course of chemotherapy as he begins a lengthy battle against the disease.

For all football fans who would like to hear more about his diagnosis, please listen to the two interviews below with Cure Leukaemia Co-Founder Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and former Wolves midfielder, Geoff Thomas.
