Nigeria and Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme has thanked the club’s fans and teammates for supporting him after he was diagnosed with leukemia last month.
The 31-year-old Super Eagles net minder sent a message to the club as he is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
The support you’ve shown me has been incredible,” said Ikeme in a video.
It’s really helped me get through these first few weeks and will help me get through the rest of my treatment.”
Wolves supporters held cards spelling Ikeme’s name before kick-off against Middlesborough last weekend in a show of support.
On the other hand, Wanderers players wore special T-shirts during their warm-up.
The English League One season opener also gave Middlesbrough a chance to show their support for Boro academy player Anthony Renton, who was also diagnosed with leukemia in July.
