"Carl Ikeme Has Been Diagnosed With Leukemia" - Wolverhampton Wanderers by naptu2: 6:21pm On Jul 06, 2017
6th July 2017

It is with great sadness that Wolves can today reveal that Carl Ikeme has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia.

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.

“It would be an understatement to say that everyone at Wolves has been shocked and saddened to hear the news of Carl’s diagnosis,” said Wolves' Managing Director Laurie Dalrymple.

“That relates to both players and staff as Carl has been at the club for a very long time and remains such an integral personality within the group.

“At the same time, we all know what a fighter and a competitor Carl is, and I have no doubt that he will take all of those attributes into this battle.

“Similarly, its goes without saying that Carl and his family will receive the full love and support that we at Wolves can provide – we are all with him every single step of the way towards a full recovery.

“There are going to be some very tough times ahead, but he will receive the best possible care, aided and supported by our own club doctor and medical team, as he embarks on the lengthy process of treatment.

“We are speaking to Carl regularly, and sending him our very best wishes as he comes to terms with this news and starts his recovery.”

Carl and his family would request that their privacy be respected at this time, and any updates on his progress will be provided through the club.

Anyone wishing to send messages of support can do so to fans@wolves.co.uk and we will pass them on to Carl at the appropriate time.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

God will give you strength to conquer this and heal you completely.


I typed while at work and didn't look very well. Sorry for the mistype. Carl is a nice man and has given his utmost like Enyeama, Osaze, Okocha etc etc.

Once again God will heal him.

Where's TB Joshua, Chris and other miracle working pastors when you need them?

oh! I forgot they only heal relatively unknown people, no popular person has been healed by our pastors

it appears once you're popular, you can never be healed from serious diseases by our pastors, but we hear of healings everyday, unknown people getting raised from the dead, deaf hearing, blind seeing, lame walking, cancer healed, "Permanent erection" healed, Robbers running away on sighting a picture of Oyedepo etc but Ayefele is still in a wheelchair, Cobhams is still blind as he was from birth, Yemi Tella died of cancer, Dora Akunyili too







could all these televised miracles be a sham
