Former Super Eagles goalkeeper open to Wolves return


Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme is keen on returning to premier league side Wolverhampton Wanderers in a coaching capacity. 


The goalkeeper, spent his entire career with Wolves from the age of 14, before he was forced to retire last year  due to his battle with leukemia.

With football, last year, it was not something I envisioned going back into. Now this year, slowly, the taste is coming back,” he told Express and Star.

“It’s not fully there yet, I’m not too sure, but maybe, eventually, I’d like to be involved at some level. I don’t know if it would be full-on or full-time, but I’d like to do something around the club.

“The club have always been brilliant with me and said the door is open when I’m ready to come back. Everything is settled in my life at the minute, and I’m not quite ready to make a decision.

“When I decide I want to do it, I want to be able to do it to my fullest. Maybe in the near future, maybe into the next year, possibly. I’d like to be involved with the club. I think I could help in any sort of way.” Ikeme made 191 appearances for Wolves and featured 10 times for the Super Eagles before his retirement.
