Nigerian goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has expressed his thanks to Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters who showed their support for him at Wembley Stadium this past weekend.
A group of Wolves fans travelled to London to watch the international friendly between England and Nigeria on Saturday and unfurled a large banner which offered support to Ikeme, who is currently fighting against Leukaemia.
The banner, which is 10m by 10m, was taken to every Wolves away game last season and has now visited Wembley too.
Ikeme, who was named as on honorary member of the Super Eagles’ 2018 World Cup squad, took to social media to express his gratitude to supporters the EFL Championship title winners.
“I just want to say thank you to Telford Wolves and everyone who has been involved in showing me such great support, and particularly taking your flag around the country, during the season,” wrote Ikeme.
“I don’t think people will ever realise how much of a boost it has given me to know that Wolves fans have still been thinking of me, particularly when I have had tough times during the treatment.
“I only need to log on to Twitter to see that support, and to see photos of the flag at Molineux or an away ground, and it has made such a difference.”
