Wolverhampton honours Carl Ikeme, retire No.1 shirt

The English Premier League club, Wolverhampton Wanderers, have retired their No.1 shirt in honour of their former goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme.

The decision was revealed when Wolves announced their squad numbers for the 2018/2019 Premier League season.

Rui Patricio will wear No.11, John Ruddy will be No.21 and Will Norris is the club’s No.31.

Ikeme started his career in the Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Academy.

He made over 190 appearances for the club.

The Super Eagles star was forced to hang up his gloves after he was diagnosed with acute leukemia in July last year.
