Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has finally broken his silence since he was diagnosed of acute Leukemia.

Ikeme, who football fans admire for his fighting spirit, says he will definitely give his all in the battle to save his life.

Thanking his fans for their love and support after the news was made public; Ikeme says it is a new chapter for him, another battle which he does not intend to lose.

“Thank you all for your kindness and Love.  The start of a new chapter and ready to give it my all! Thank you,” Ikeme wrote.

The football fraternity in Nigeria and across the world were left in shock after the news of the 31-year-old shot stopper was broken by his Championship club, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves have promised that Ikeme will receive the best medical treatment to beat leukaemia, while the whole football world – including fellow goalkeepers - David de Gea and Iker Casillas have wished him all the best.

Leukaemia is a group of cancer that usually begins in the bone marrow and results in high numbers of abnormal white blood cells.
